The guns, as far as I know; are designed specifically for Equine use allowing a hoof to pull a trigger thanks to special modifications to the trigger design and etc. While Griffon guns are most likely very similar to outdated human guns thanks to the fact that griffins have digits and thus can pull a trigger normally.

It also would seem like most hoof - guns are half spear half rifle, and use a different proppellant or gunpowder substitute in their guns, while the griffins use basic gunpowder rifles.

My personal fanon for Crusaders 10K, is the Sirens are each controlling one side behind the scenes, between the three of them secretly making no side truly loses or truly wins, only continue to endlessly conflict with each other adding more to feed them, and such a full scale war on Equestria WOULD power them up to be basically goddesses.

"The Battle of Cloudsdale was an essential battle in the War of Griffonian Succession. General Iron-Tail, the griffon who won victory in the Siege of Ponyville, sought to conquer Cloudsdale using the same weapons used to conquer the eastern half of the commonwealth; gunpowder. Professor Himrick Wulf, a wolfish philosopher from the northwestern kingdom of Ferax, theorized that if powder from raw magic crystals were brought to spark, it would produce the same results as the common griffon musket. Princess Celestia wasted no time to order her highest war wizards to test this theory and, to the wonder of all of Equestria, it worked. The powder was soon weaponized in a similar form as a hand-cannon and was quickly rushed off to Cloudsdale to defend the floating city.

"The griffon army arrived on the 6th of April, 1006. With 10000 infantry, wielding pikes, swords, and muskets, 4000 heavy pegasi cavalry, and around 30 cannons stationed around the city, the ponies figured that fighting them would be suicide since their garrison held no more than 6000 infantry and 10 cannons. However, both armies were shocked to see Princess Celestia and the Rainbow Warriors, her personal legion of sullied soldiers, charging through the invading infantry and cavalry. Wielding the new magical muskets, now dubbed the Smoke-Pole, the griffons were quickly overwhelmed and Iron-Tail was killed by a stray magical bullet. By the end of the day, the griffons were either dead, captured, or retreating; victory was awarded to the ponies and Celestia set her sights on reclaiming her home: Canterlot."

*Raises hoof* Now I understand we were in a rush to defend against this threat, but how did the equestrian forces manage victory when they probably were less experienced then the gryphon shooters?

That's a funny story. You see, during the first few hours of the battle, we were getting our asses kicked. Our artillery was overrun, Commander Rainbow Spectrem (Rainbow Dash's father) was killed by a pike, and the front gates were broken down. But, the ponies did the same thing the Russians did in Stalingrad; bull rushing and urban warfare.

Uh... why did we use magic crystals? I mean, I know the ponies back then would be desperate, but wouldn't it be simpler, and a lot less expensive to, say... reverse engineer the gunpowder weapons that the griffons were using? It should just be a mixture of sulfur, saltpeter, and charcoal.

Firstly, they were plentiful and more cheep to manufacture than the rarity of Equestrian blasting powder. Secondly, their charcoal and sulfur mines were taken over or burned by the Griffons.

WOW! :O This is simply amazing! I can already imagine the captain's speech before the battle (something Theoden's speech before the battle of minas tirith)

Forth, and fear no darkness! Arise! Arise, knights of Equestria! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword day... a red day... ere the sun rises! Charge
 now!... Charge now!... Charge! Charge to ruin and the world's ending!

Pay attention, son. This is the part of the story that's really important. Now this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky. The wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die. As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunks the law runneth forward and back; for the strength of the pack... is the wolf. And the strength of the wolf... is the pack.
