Description:The AV-7 Antivehicle Cannon, also known as the AV-7 Mobile Cannon, the Republic Artillery Gun, the heavy cannon, or the Clone Artillery Cannon, was a self-propelled artillery unit used by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars.

The vehicle could be operated by one clone tank gunner in a seat on the side of the gun, and had a chamber for refilling plasma shells to the side of the lower chassis.

The vehicle would be moved with its built in repulsorlifts until it reached a suitable firing position and then entrench itself on the ground, using four metallic feet for support.
Its artillery shells created a fairly large blast radius, able to take out both vehicles and surrounding droids in a single shot.

Republic Artillery Guns were used during the Battle of Christophsis where they countered the Confederacy's AATs and titanic Tri-droids. The Separatists then erected a deflector shield which rendered the cannons ineffective. Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano eventually destroyed the deflector shield generator, disabling the shield and allowing four AV-7s to halt the enemy advance and help score the Republic victory.

These cannons were also used during the Second Battle of Geonosis when Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano were attempting to infiltrate a Separatist droid factory. Many of these cannons were destroyed by the Separatist experimental super tanks.
