The RGM-122C Javelin Cannon was a variation of the Earth Federation Forces’ RGM-122 Javelin. Manufactured during the later half of the Javelin’s mass production, these variants replaced the shot lancers with a pair of back-mounted beam cannons. Units used by the Zagren team mounted single barrel cannons and were painted red, while units belonging to the Tailcode team mounted 4-barrel cannons and were painted dark blue. Unfortunately, the Javelin Cannon’s generator lacked sufficient power for the beam cannons, and as a result could only fire a few shots before having to recharge. The Javelin Cannon was also armed with vulcan guns, beam sabers and a beam shield.
