The Z-6 rotary blaster cannon was a blaster cannon used by the Galactic Republic[2] and the Separatist Alliance[3] during the Clone Wars. Later, during the reign of the Galactic Empire, these weapons were used by both the Imperial Army's Heavy Weapons Stormtroopers and Rebel Alliance's Heavy Soldiers during the Galactic Civil War.[4]

The Z-6 was a powerful and rapid-fire weapon for Republic troops during the Clone Wars.[5] Heavy Gunners were specialized clone troopers who used the Z-6.[6]

During the Battle of the Rishi moon, clone trooper CT-782 "Hevy" used a Z-6 to defend the station before sacrificing himself to warn the Republic to stop a Separatist attack on Kamino.[5] During the Battle of Umbara, clone trooper "Hardcase" used a Z-6 blaster cannon.[7] At the Battle of Ringo Vinda, the 501st Legion and Clone Commander Doom's unit relied heavily on the Z-6 to attack Admiral Trench's forces.[8] When the Republic invaded Scipio, Commander "Thorn" used a Z-6 nicknamed "the Hammer."[9][10]
