Ion Cannons are generally viewed as defense armament, but they are quite common on pirate and military vessels. Ion Cannons deal Ion damage, as detailed in Equipment. Of Starship-mounted Ion Cannons, all but the smallest don't have a cyclic rate of fire high enough to allow Autofire, even when mounted in Cannon, Double/Quad or Fire-Linked configurations.

Hapan Triple Ion Cannon Edit

The Hapan Triple Ion Cannon is a special Capital Ship weapon that acts like a Point-Defense Weapon (Using Point-Defense Ranges and taking no penalty for attacking ships of smaller than Colossal size). It is also capable of Autofire mode, but it may not make Starship Scale Area Attacks. Until the New Jedi Order era, Hapan Triple Ion Cannons are Illegal outside the Hapan Consortium, and the Hapans do not sell them to outsiders.
