Ion cannons are a protoss technology developed for the phoenix[1] and later the mirage.[2] They fire beams of negatively charged ions, doing heavy damage to armored targets. The short wavelength of the ions allow the cannons to be fired on the move, but at a short range. The ion cannons’ effective combat range presented a problem until the protoss began to replace the old focusing lenses with the more advanced anion pulse-crystals.[1] Upon impact, the beams disintegrate lightly armored targets.[3]
