The Hypervelocity Autocannon/10 is based on the Autocannon/10. While it has the same damage class, it is capable of firing much further. However, in order to obtain the increased ballistic range, the hypervelocity ammo is larger, reducing the number of shots per ton of ammo. Like Ultra or Rotary autocannons, Hypervelocity autocannons are unable to make use of special munitions.[5][1]
