"Members of my escort have completed assembly of an E-Web heavy repeating blaster. If you are unfamiliar with this weapon, I am sure that Republican Shock Trooper Carasynthia Dune of Alderaan will advise you that she has witnessed many of her ranks vaporize mid-descent facing the predecessor of this particular model."
―Moff Gideon[src]

The E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon, formally known as the Emplacement Weapon, Heavy Blaster or simply as the E-Web was the most powerful heavy repeating blaster cannon in the Imperial arsenal and commonly used by Imperial snowtroopers of the Galactic Empire.

DescriptionEdit

The E-Web featured rigid mounts to counteract the kinetic energy created by the weapon's formidable firepower, and was usually operated by a two-person crew. However, its set-up time limited its effectiveness. In consequence, various Imperial crews pre-charged its generator for faster assembly, however doing so required careful adjustment of the power flow to prevent an overload.[1]

HistoryEdit

When the Imperial forces invaded Echo Base on Hoth, they used an E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon in an attempt to prevent the Millennium Falcon from escaping.[2] A newer model was constructed by 9 ABY[3] and was utilized by Moff Gideon's remnant during a skirmish on Nevarro.[4]

According to SWCustom-2011 SWCC 2019: 9 Things We Learned from The Mandalorian Panel on StarWars.com (backup link), the events of The Mandalorian take place about five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Therefore, it can be deduced with simple math that the events of The Mandalorian take place around 9 ABY.
