An E-Web Heavy Repeating Blaster.

The E-Web heavy blaster is a tripod-mounted blaster cannon used by the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War.


The E-Web is a heavy support blaster that requires a crew of at least three: one to fire the cannon, one to carry and set up the tripod, and one to carry the power module. It is a rapid-fire weapon that is comparable in use to the Browning M2 (Ma Deuce) heavy machine gun used by NATO forces. The E-Web is powerful enough to provide fire support for infantry positions and to damage lightly armored starships, such as the Millennium Falcon.

The E-Web can easily be automated and mounted on vehicles and starships, as demonstrated by the one Han Solo mounted on his venerable light freighter. It has an advanced, built-in sighting system with macrobinocular capabilities that allow the operator to easily target fast-moving objects.
