"Will you look at that? Twin quad lasers. That's, what, a three-year prison sentence right there?"
Joak Quiller, concerning the illegal weaponry of the Millennium Falcon

The quad laser cannon, or quadlaser, was a type of weaponry commonly used on small freighters such as the Millennium Falcon.

It consisted of four laser cannons which fired alternately in pairs. They were very powerful compared to other ship-mounted weapons, and more affordable as well. They varied in size, from the relatively small versions mounted on the Millennium Falcon to larger variants mounted on smaller warships like the Lancer-class frigate. K-wing assault fighters were armed with quad laser cannons.

Even heavier quad turbolasers were mounted on bigger warships or used as ground artillery.

Quadlasers were illegal under Imperial jurisdiction by the time of the Galactic Civil War, punishable by a considerable prison sentence.[1]
