Description[edit]

The Ultra AC/2 is the smallest bore autocannon of the Ultra series. Ultra autocannon are capable of firing twice in a turn, doubling heat and--potentially--damage. Since it is the smallest, the Ultra AC/2 also has the longest range and most ammo per ton of any Ultra autocannon, however it also deals the least amount of damage.

Variants[edit]

In the years between the Second Exodus and the beginning of Operation KLONDIKE the nascent Clans began development of what would become the Ultra Autocannon/2. Experimental prototype versions of this new weapon were used during Operation KLONDIKE in small quantities. The Clan Prototype Ultra Autocannon/2 available during this period has identical stats to the Inner Sphere Ultra Autocannon/2, with the following differences: the Ultra Autocannon/2 occupies one additional critical slot, and suffers a weapon jam on a to-hit result of 2 or 3.[3]

Models[edit]

The Ultra AC/2 is manufactured on the following planets in the Inner Sphere:
