The Autocannon is a direct-fire ballistic weapon, firing HEAP (High-Explosive Armor-Piercing) rounds at targets either singly or in bursts.
Different manufacturers and models of autocannons have different calibers (25mm-203mm) and rates of fire. Due to this, autocannons are grouped into generic "classes" of autocannons with common damage ratings, with Autocannon/2s having an extremely long range at the cost of having a very small damage output.
The Autocannon/2 is manufactured on the following planets:
|Imperator Smoothie-2||Atreus||Imperator Automatic Weaponry|
|Mydron D||Gulkana||Yeffters Weapons Factory|
|ZeusBolt||Dunianshire||Canopus Industries Alpha|
