An Ion Cannon for mounting on a Hammerhead

The Ion Cannon is a powerful Tau weapon mounted on large vehicles and starships.

The Ion Cannon itself operates by generating a stream of high-energy ionised particles and launching them at a target using an electromagnetic field. These particles react explosively with the target, transferring tremendous energy at the atomic level.[1][2] The resulting vaporisation only magnifies the amount of damage dealt, with starship-based models comparable to Imperial Lances.[3]
