Tank/Cannon
Tank Turret

The Tank/Cannon is the first of two HWPs available to new X-COM Commanders.

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, 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.

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