THis stem looks like a general principle : "According to United States Air Force officials". Knowing that present looks better than any past tense.

Between C & D, helpful to demonstrate is better than helpful as demonstrating (to the numerous gurus, if the possible answer was "in demonstrating" what would be the best choics between modified C & D ?)

Twixt,

If I had to choose between C and D I would go for D.
Shoots is // to Proves
2. But To demonstrate just doesn't sound right...

The phrase 'a cannon........ proves itself helpful to demonstrate ' in 'D' makes it sound like the cannon itself will demonstrate the kind of damage that can result. It totally alters the intent of the original passage.
So, I will go with 'E', which uses 'in demonstrating'.
