Like the LB 10-X AC, the LB 5-X AC is capable of firing two different types of ammunition: slug and cluster. A slug shot is akin to a traditional autocannon round that deals 5 points of damage to one location. A cluster shot, however, fragments like a shotgun round and spreads its damage around. This effect creates flak that is useful against VTOLs.
