The Punisher Rotary Cannon is an anti-infantry, rotary-type ballistic cannon used by the military forces of the Imperium of Man during the Great Crusade of the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. The Punisher Rotary Cannon was the main armament of the once common Cerberus Pattern Main Battle Tank, and was later adapted for use by the Sicaran Punisher Assault Tank of the Space Marine Legions.
The Punisher fires a ceaseless barrage of high calibre shells, supported by a complex ammunition-feed array and a gyro-assisted recoil compensator. Though each of the shells is little more than a solid ferro-carbide slug, the sheer rate of fire that this weapon is capable of is more than sufficient for the obliteration of large infantry formations or light vehicles.
