The Napoleonic Wars DLC for M&B Warband added artillery to the game. When choosing the artillery class, one can choose to spawn with a cannon pulled by a horse. There are two choices of cannon, normal cannon and howitzer.

Are there any difference between them, and what are they?

I don't know if this info is still actual, since it is from the beta. But as you can see in this clip the howitzer and the cannons can use different kind of ammunition.

Cannons can use normal ammunition and that shotgun like (cartridge?) ammunition. And the howitzer can use the normal and the explosive ammunition.

Apparently there are more than these few types of ammunition, but I don't know what they are and with which type of artillery they can be used.
