Cannon is a type of weaponry used in naval combat engagements and is the mainstay tool used to deal damage or cripple an target. Like naval combat of old, cannons are used in broadside volleys when battles are waged between cruisers, frigates, or other large starships; each combatant maneuvering their vessels in place to deliver broadside after broadside. Payloads are generally particle based or energy based ranging from electric, neutron, proton, pulse, and, the more expensive and damaging tachyon based.
