"The Ion Cannon's crystaline-based structure makes this the best shielded defense turret available, though its attack damage is less than the Heavy Laser.
Similar technology existed in the 21st century, then known as EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse). This blaster turret has a special pulse beam that will cause instantaneous interference in all electronic equipment, damaging or destroying the more sensitive electronic equipment."
The Ion Cannon's primary purpose is to provide shielding as it has the highest shields among defenses available. It is more expensive to construct than a Light Laser, but only has slightly more attack.
