V-150 ion cannon SWB

A v-150 planetary ion cannon at Outpost Beta on the planet Hoth.

Ion cannons were a form of armament that fired ionized particles capable of disrupting electronic systems.[1] Larger types could even disable a large capital ship, such as those that were mounted on the side of the Malevolence, or the v-150 planetary ion cannon used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic.

The Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor featured ion cannons that shot bursts of plasma that would cause temporary electrical disruptions to a target upon impact.[2]

Y-wing starfighters were also equipped with ion cannons, most notably those used by the Alliance's Gold Squadron. Though their field of fire was somewhat limited, the ion cannons were quite powerful, with three blasts being sufficient to disable an Arquitens-class command cruiser and only one to completely disable a TIE/D Defender starfighter. This was demonstrated during a skirmish in the Archeon Nebula.
