The Light Autocannon was prototyped in the late 3050s, and introduced in 3068 by the Federated Suns[2], but saw full-scale production only after the Word of Blake Jihad destroyed the New Avalon Institute of Science. The Light AC/2, as its name implies, is a smaller, lighter version of the Autocannon/2. While it does not have the range of its larger cousin, it does have the ability to use the same special munitions.
