Rotor Cannon

Rotor Cannons were weapons used by the Imperial Army and Space Marine Legions during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. These weapons were multi-barreled Stubbers, using electric motors to maintain an extremely high rate of fire from their spinning barrel. Their medium caliber-slugs lacked the power of Bolter shells, but nonetheless the sheer volume of them proved effective against unarmored hordes of foes and fleshy Xenos. Eventually, the more famous Space Marine Assault Cannon was developed from the Rotor Cannon.[1]
