Automated SWS's have high manuverability and hull strength. They provide heavy troop support at all depths. SWS's are re-armed automatically if you have enough ammunition.

This is one of the first two Submersible Weapons Systems available to new X-COM Commanders.

The Coelacanth/Gas Cannon carries (unsurprisingly) a gas cannon that fires powerful armour-piercing rounds. Up to 30 rounds can be loaded for a single mission.

An important advantage over Coelacanth/Aqua Jet is its ability to operate both underwater and on land. This makes the Coelacanth/Gas Cannon an important asset, especially in early terror missions.

This weapons system is used in Terror from the Deep. In UFO: Enemy Unknown, the Tank/Cannon is the equivalent.

  • The Ufopedia entry incorrectly lists the weapon damage as 50AP. 60AP is obtained directly from the game executable.
