The v-150 ion cannon was a model of planetary ion cannon capable of disabling capital ships. Prior to the Battle of Hoth, the Alliance to Restore the Republic used a v-150 to allow their transports to slip past Imperial Star Destroyers.[2] The cannon was later destroyed during the battle.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The v-150 ion cannon first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, and was based off of concept art by Ralph McQuarrie.[4]
