Z-6 Rotary Blaster

this rotary blaster cannon was developed for the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars by Merr-Sonn. It was designed as a rapid-fire weapon, capable of producing a devastating spray of blaster bolts from its rotating barrel. However, the galven circuitry of the main weapon required dedicated recharge time, which limited the Z-6's ability to actually "spray" a target with energy. Any attempt to overfire the Z-6 led to excessive overheating and the possibility of explosion. Thus, its regular use in the combat of the Clone Wars meant that most Z-6s in use required regular maintenance, and those that were used most often were prone to breakdowns. Despite these problems, the Z-6 could still fire more than 160 rounds per second, earning the nickname of "chaingun." This ability to lay down a wide spray of fire made the Z-6 the perfect weapon for defending a landing zone, but many clone troopers claimed that it was too bulky to be carried around. Thus, the Z-6 was relegated to special tactial missions where it didn't require regular maintenance and transport.
