This chapter examines the artillery in Macau during the nineteenth century. Macau has light machine guns and armoured cars equipped with BESA machine guns. This chapter describes the specifications of Macau's artillery and provides relevant photographs. It suggests that it is indeed fortunate that much of Macau's fortifications have survived along with some interesting examples of the guns that armed them.
