Clan Wolf had the idea to put 2 on the Woodsman chassis.  Were there any others that pre-dated it?

Well, there's the Bowman, but while it shows up a century after the Woodsman was introduced the fact that we don't have an introduction date (or record sheet) for the Arrow IV Woodsman makes it hard to say which came first.

Closest I can find is a Helepolis with copperhead rounds.

...which is a very poor use of a ton of ammo, in my experience. While an "AC/10" hit can be useful, from time-to-time, it's rarely enough to put a unit down during the artillery phase. The "splash damage" from direct fire is just so much more useful.
