    The multiple successes of the new Gallowglas Battlemech prompted Blackwell to begin a study
    on the possibility of using the design as a base for a new line of Mechs.  The Cannon is the
    first of these new experimental machines.
    The GAL-2DSM (for Down-Sized Model) is a scaled down version the Gallowglas.  Like its
    larger brethren is is equipped solely with energy weapons, eliminating any dependency on
    ammunition, an Endo-Steel skeleton, to save weithy, and a standard engine, to increase
    battlefield survival and reduce construction cost.

    The main punch of the Cannon, and the source of its name, is the torso-mounted Sunbeam large
    laser.  Although this extended range model generates a lot more heat (more, in fact that the
    heat sinks can normally handle), it does provide an excellent punch for so light a design.
    Unfortunately, the Cannon also suffers from some deficiencies,  The choice of standard heat
    sinks instead of double strength models reduces the machine's endurance, while the absence
    of jump jets is a major shortcoming.  However, these flaws may be corrected by use of
    Clan-level technology, which Blackwell is reported to have.
