The AV-7 Antivehicle Cannon, also called Republic Artillery Gun, Heavy Cannons, or Clone Artillery Cannon, was a repulsorlift self-propelled artillery unit used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.

Characteristics

Artillery Guns in action at the Battle of Christophsis.

The vehicle could be operated by one clone tank gunner in a seat on the side of the gun, and had a chamber for refilling shells to the side of the lower chassis.

The vehicle would float until it reached a suitable firing position and then entrench itself on the ground, using four metallic feet for support.

One could take out about one tank and four battle droids in one shot.

History

Republic Artillery Guns were used during the Battle of Christophsis where they countered the Confederacy's AATs and titanic Tri-droids. The Separatists then erected a deflector shield which rendered the cannons ineffective. Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano eventually destroyed the deflector shield generator, disabling the shield and allowing four AV-7s to halt the enemy advance and help score the Republic victory. These cannons were also used on Geonosis in the Second Battle of Geonosis when Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano were attempting to infiltrate a Seperatist droid factory. Many of these cannons were destroyed by the Seperatist experimental super tanks.
