Welcome to Librarium Online!
well im kind of in a dilemma. shall i go for the automatic hit zzhap gun or a long range inaccurate kannon?
what do you think?
I went for the Kannon, because of the longer range. I am right in thinking that because it is ordance you don't have to roll to hit or am I just plain wrong. It has caused a bit of head scratching on my part I can tell you.

definetly the kannon, it can cause as much damage as a zzap gun and then some. (get it right anyway) its really a choice of quantity vs. quality where the kannon is quantity and the zzap gun is quality due to what they can kill per turn...

but we are orks are we not. is the kannon so good that you don't won't automatic hit?
i can see your point. lets hear some other oppinoins
Zzap gun, hands down da best weapon in da orks arsenal. why? roll strength. auto hit.(your an ork! its always yer best chance!
its a bonafide killin machine that some mek somewhere came up with...gork bless him.

the kannon is more versitile, yes, in order to shoot the 2d6 pen option you have to roll to hit, but if you opt for the small blast marker, it'll just scatter a little.
shure, the zzap gun is more powerfull, but it becomes useless when you're facing certain lists.
the Kannon is capable of taking out any tank (with a little luck), but it can also remove sqads at a time. I play with the Kannon, and I'm happy with it.
of course... I play feral orks and can't take zzap guns, so perhaps I'm just minimizing one of my weaknesses
i beleave that kannon are ordenance now arn't they?
I think I can give you the full stat line, as it is the FAQ (hope I can)
they may fire either fire a strength 5 ap 5 blast marker that scatters like ordinance, or a strength 8 ap 3 single shot that penetrates like ordinance.
you need to roll to hit for the latter, not the former.
Despite bad wording in the Codex/FAQ Kannons are NOT Ordinance (neither are lobbas).
Kannons shoot a Str 5 Blast marker rolling 2d6 for scatter. Other than that its just a normal blast shot, like a Frag missle. Or it can fire the normal shot.
