The Tank/Cannon carries a cannon that fires powerful armour-piercing rounds. Up to 30 rounds can be loaded for a single mission.
While it is universally considered to be the least exceptional of all the HWPs, the Tank/Cannon can still surpass the Tank/Rocket Launcher for ammunition longevity. Particularly when combating Cyberdiscs. Where a Tank/Rocket Launcher will rapidly deplete its ammo after combating a few of these enemies, the Tank/Cannon will often have ample supplies of ammunition left over to take down several more.
Unlike the Tank/Rocket Launcher, which can still be useful in later stages of the campaign. This is due to it's ability to be shipped rather than manufactured, which is often quicker than manufacturing one of the alternatives. It is a good option for bolstering a new bases defensive force. However, if the production capabilities exist in the new base then the Tank/Cannon is immediately outclassed by the Tank/Laser Cannon and the Hovertank/Plasma. Until then, its main function is to fill in any voids that the Tank/Rocket Launcher leaves behind or as a defensive option for new bases.
