Flechette ammunition is a special munition that can be used by standard autocannons. Engineered to be effective against conventional infantry, it is composed of metal fragments delivered in a shotgun-like blast instead of explosive shells. Introduced by the Federated Suns in 3055[1] to improve the effectiveness of their autocannon, the usage of flechette munitions reinforces the importance of autocannons to that nation.


Game Rules[edit]

Flechette rounds deal double damage against unarmored infantry in CBT play, though they deal half damage against all other targets.[2]
