The Burst Cannon is significantly larger than the Pulse Carbine but unable to mount a Photon Grenade launcher. Able to sustain a high rate-of-fire, it is primarily mounted on Battlesuits and other Tau Vehicles. Burst cannons are powerful enough to reduce an unarmoured human to a ragged corpse and throw it back a dozen meters, although Space Marines in Power Armour are better able to withstand this level of firepower.
