The electromagnetic pulse cannon, abbreviated as the EMP cannon, is a weapon system employed by the UNSC Navy in the post-war era.[1]

The UNSC Port Stanley was equipped with one, which it used to disable the Covenant auxiliary vessel Piety.

Overview[edit]

Firing operation[edit]

The cannon fires a directed electromagnetic pulse at its target, disabling any ship unhardened against EM pulses.

Aiming[edit]

While the cannon can be aimed manually, an artificial intelligence can operate the cannon much faster and aim with greater accuracy.
