E.

The difference between D and E (even if D was "has proved itself" instead of "proves itself") is that the cannon does not prove itself. The only way that concept would make sense is something like "The cannon proves that it is useful to demonstrate..." But even here, there are extra words and the meaning is not as clearly conveyed as in E.
