A Snub Cannon is a type of projectile weapon which fires "snub" shells. These shells have a rounded nose which use a combination of sabot and self-forging warhead technologies to generate tremendous kinetic energy upon impact. The drawback is a very sharp drop in speed and accuracy with distance, making it a short-ranged weapon mostly used for demolition or tank-hunting.[1][2]

Notable Examples
  • 106mm Paxton LGPC "Little Joe" Snub Cannon - A common model of Snub Cannon, often assigned to one member of a Heavy Gear squad.[1]
