Laser Cannons are developed from mining lasers. Consume very much energy and cause extreme heat, but a single shot deliver similar damage than a series of beam lasers.
Very short ranged (5-10km) and has low fire rates (1-4 seconds/shot) so must aim carefully.
Always check the distance of your target! Don't waste a shot when over the range of your cannon!
All cannons can break apart asteroids as Mining lasers.

Originally discussed in the New lasers topic.
Kruger CRM38 Mining Cannon
The cheapest laser cannon ever made. Ideal for mineral extraction with single shots from point-blank range (5km).
Ingram 3838C8 Dual Laser Cannon
Short range (5km) laser cannon both for mining and defence. Technically use two Mining Cannons in alternating mode to earn double firing rate.
Hassoni C38 Quad Laser Cannon
Four Mining Cannons in alternation mode result quadrupled firing rate (still two times slower than a Pulse Laser). The range is short (5km), need a lot of energy and the heat is going up fast but perform very well in dogfight.
Lance & Ferman Military Cannon
You can make your career as a fearsome bounty hunter with this weapon. Provide longer range (10km) and contain better coolers than a Quad Laser Cannon. Deliver more powerful punches, mine large asteroids with a single shot.
LF38 Twin Military Laser Cannon
The biggest laser cannon both in damage, range (10km) and power consumption, as predictable from two Military Cannons linked to fire together. Aim carefully and run away when a similar white beam incoming. Provide easy mining from large asteroids but overheats right from the first shot and need at least an Anaconda to hold it.
