Laser cannons were powerful laser weapons that were commonly outfitted to vehicles, starfighters, and starships. A laser cannon could be fixed in place or attached to a turret or ball-mounted swivel, allowing the weapon to aim and fire in many directions.
Starfighters and other small craft that were equipped with laser cannons included the T-65B X-wing starfighter, the BTL-A4 Y-wing assault starfighter/bomber, the Phantom, the patrol transports of Coruscant, the Republic attack shuttle, the Lambda-class T-4a shuttle, the A-wing starfighter, the ARC-170 starfighter, the B-wing starfighter, the Republic attack gunships, the Gauntlet fighter, the HH-87 Starhopper, the Hyena bomber, the Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, the TIE fighter, the Grand Inquisitor's TIE Advanced prototype, and the clone Z-95 starfighter.
Starships that were equipped with laser cannons included the Malevolence, the Ghost, Merchant One, the Millennium Falcon, the droid gunship, the Imperial Star Destroyer, the Corona-class armed frigate, the Venator-class Star Destroyer (also known as the "Republic attack cruiser"), the Republic frigate, the Providence-class dreadnought, the Separatist supply ship, Slave I, the IPV-2C Stealth Corvette, the Trade Federation landing ship, the Trident-class assault ship, and the Twilight.
Vehicles that were equipped with laser cannons included the All Terrain Tactical Enforcer or "AT-TE walker," the All Terrain Armored Transport or "AT-AT walker," the All Terrain Recon Transport or "AT-RT walker," the All Terrain Scout Transport or "AT-ST walker," the Gian speeder, the freeco bike, the WLO-5 battle tank, General Grievous' Speeder as well as his TSMEU-6 personal wheel bike, the T-47 airspeeder, and the Umbaran mobile heavy cannon (or "Umbaran MHC").
A type of laser cannon that was used as a personal heavy weapon was referred to as a rotary laser cannon, rotating laser cannon, or as the Z-6 rotary blaster cannon. Such weapons were used by clone troopers Hardcase and Thorn.
As laser cannons appear in almost every Star Wars work, this list contains only specific mentions of laser cannons.
