Description[edit]

The Naval Autocannon 40 is the largest of the naval autocannons. It fires a massive shell at DropShips, WarShips, and planets (orbital bombardment). The damage done by this weapon is the most of any capital weapon (with the exception of the Word of Blake's Mass Drivers) and can destroy even Assault DropShips and Pocket WarShips with an single hit. The massive size means it is typically found on the largest of WarShips, such as the McKenna.
