Blaster Cannons were artillery vehicles used by the Rebel Alliance and its successor, the New Republic, during the Galactic Civil War. Blaster Cannons were used during the liberation of Krant some time after the Battle of Endor. They were constructed at Fortresses for a cost of 200 units of carbon and 200 units of nova crystals. They were weakly-armored but had a powerful energy cannon, and when not in use folded down. Blaster Cannons had to deploy into a firing position to launch their attacks.

Behind the scenesEdit

Blaster Cannons appear in the 2001 video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds. The campaign was later included in its 2002 expansion pack. An image of a Blaster Cannon was used to represent the "cannon" unit in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds: Prima's Official Strategy Guide.
