The gauss cannon is a heavy automatic anti-infantry gauss weapon, firing spikes at supersonic speeds.
Man-portable and vehicle-mounted versions exist, as well as robotic sentry versions, such as that used by the auto-turret. Designs for auto-defense cannon turrets were available as far back as 2499.
