The "Apocalypse" Magnetic Accelerator Cannon (MAC) is the main cannon in UNSC warfare in space. It fires a tungsten shell of several hundred tons, which is accelerated to vast speeds with magnets. This weapon is powerful enough to instantly collapse Covenant shields and breach the hull of basically all ships in one shot.

RSR/RXT-78A "Apocalypse" Triple Fire Magnetic Accelerator Cannon
This is a special model of MAC gun that utelizes special capacitors and a special fragmentation shell to fire three shots in quick succession. The idea is that the first two shots will take out shields, and the final will cripple or destroy the target. To date, it has only been deployed on one class of ship

RSR/RXO-79B "Armageddon" Super Magnetic Accelerator Cannon This is a MAC gun scaled up to massive proportions. To date, this weapon is only fielded in large, orbital defense platforms, as the power needed by these guns is too much for a average ship's reactor to supply.
