The Zeus 320mm plasma cannon[2] is a human mortar weapon capable of focusing and directing plasma as a projectile like most Covenant weapons. Developed as a result of reverse engineering Covenant matériel procured by ONI during the Harvest Campaign, it was made to be used on the M145D Rhino.[3] By February 2531, the Rhinos and their plasma cannons were being field-tested and the UNSC Pillar of Autumn carried some prototypes on board.[1]

During the Battle for Arcadia, the cannons of five Rhinos in conjunction were used to take down a portion of a giant energy shield, allowing the UNSC Spirit of Fire to take down the Covenant shield generators and air defenses below, exposing the Covenant operation on Arcadia.[1]
