M8 'Flak' 120mm Artillery Cannon
"Greetings! C-3PO again with the M8 120mm cannon, the definitive medium artillery piece of the 25th Elite Legion and our allies. Designed for mobility, durability, simplicity, and raw stopping power, the M8 is the new standard in medium artillery.
About this creation

A top view of the M8, with nine assorted artillery shells that can be fired by the gun.


The M8 can switch from a howitzer to a horizontal-attack antitank gun in seconds manually (by turning the yellow wheel) or automatically (by using its computer). Either way, its low profile and wide gun shield prove invaluable in attacking behind camouflage netting.


A rear view of the cannon. The control panel on the left is the gun's computer, which controls trajectory, elevation, and other things. Atop the barrel is a manual sight, while below it is the gun's butt where the shells are loaded. To the right is a black conical piece (its compass) and below that is the yellow wheel.


The battery in action. Normal crew is seven (four shell loaders that may perform additional tasks, such as moving the cannon around {closest to the gun}; an ammunition master with his mate {the Clone with a box and the one closest to the shells}; and a spotter/officer that seeks targets and orders his crew to fire).


A one-fourth view of the same action from the front.


The M8 opening up on an airborne target in Flak cannon mode. The computer provides guidance for the shell and instructs the gun when and where to fire.


This is what's occurring 40,000 feet above the gun itself: an enemy bomber-transport, en route to attack 25th Elite Legion troops in Tatooine, is smashed through the left wing by a M8 shell. He loses control and spirals downward to his doom on the desert floor.


This man learned his lesson the hard way: Don't mess with the 25th, or else. His wreck, located in the Dune Sea, is a testament to his folly and arrogance. Don't end up like him.
