Artillery
ARTILLERY is a class of large military weapons built to fire munitions far beyond the range and power of infantry 's small arms . Early artillery development focused on the ability to breach fortifications , and led to heavy, fairly immobile siege engines . As technology improved, lighter, more mobile field artillery developed for battlefield use. This development continues today; modern self-propelled artillery vehicles are highly mobile weapons of great versatility providing the largest share of an army's total firepower. In its earliest sense, the word artillery referred to any group of soldiers primarily armed with some form of manufactured weapon or armour. Since the introduction of gunpowder and cannon , the word "artillery" has largely meant cannon, and in contemporary usage, it usually refers to shell -firing guns, howitzers , mortars , rockets and guided missiles

Infantry
INFANTRY is the general branch of an army that engages in military combat on foot. As the troops who engage with the enemy in close-ranged combat, infantry units bear the largest brunt of warfare and typically suffer the greatest number of casualties during a military campaign. Historically, as the oldest branch of the combat arms , the infantry are the tip of the spear of a modern army, and continually undergo training that is typically more physically demanding and psychologically stressful than that of any other branch of the combat arms. Common representations of infantry fighting forces include the U.S. Army Infantry
