The exact firepower of the weapon isn't specified, but it is stated that a Thanix cannon mounted on a [[frigate]] or [[starfighter|fighter]] can carry the firepower of a [[cruiser]]'s mass accelerator. This presumably means it has less firepower than a [[dreadnought]]'s mass accelerator, which delivers about 38 kt of energy per shot. Assuming that a cruiser's mass accelerator is about half as long as a dreadnought's, the projectile would have 1/4 the kinetic energy, or around 10 kt, and a frigate's Thanix cannon would be comparable.

Just two shots from the Thanix cannon mounted on the ''[[Normandy SR-2]]'' were sufficient to destroy a [[Collector cruiser]]. The Reaper weapon upon which it is based can deliver hundreds of kilotons of energy in a single shot, but it is part of a much larger warship.
