Nope. Ballistic Skill based, as missiles.

The range and rules are in the high elf book.
And the rules for bolt throwers are in the main rulebook on page 90.

And you can get a LOT of Galloper Guns into the HE army!

2 bolts shooting at a unit will do more damage than a cannon will.

Depends....
Bouncing a couple of cannonballs through a unit tends to do more damage, especially against t4 things.
St4 is a long way off st4, penetrating ranks is rarely better than multi-shots on massed ranks.

Although cannons do misfire.
In general though the cannons are better and cheaper and often more accurate.
But bolt throwers fit in much better.

Bolt throwers do outperform galloper guns though.

If you're going to get Dogs of War for Elf rares, then it's fairly obvious GW wants you to get 4 GIANTS

RBTs with HEs work. Cannons.....in a HE army?......Naaaawww, not fluffy, at least NOT for me. A giant? The HEs have monsters to choose from.

Now, I do not care if a HE opponent uses DoW cannons against me. Roll out the Orcs or the Empire, that's what I do.
