Usage notes[edit]

In modern military usage, пушка refers to an artillery piece with a relatively long barrel, operating with a relatively low angle of fire or as a direct fire weapon, e.g. a field gun, an anti-aircraft gun, or an autocannon.

Historically, the word пушка had been used to refer to any large artillery piece, similarly to the historical usage of the English word cannon.
