The Battle cannon is a larger and heavier version of the autocannon, its size restricting its use to vehicles only. It is the primary weapon of the Leman Russ Battle Tank, where its explosive shells can decimate both infantry and other armour. In addition to high-explosive and anti-tank rounds, it can also fire Infernus, smoke and illumination shells.
