[edit] Description

The Ultra AC/20 is the largest bore Ultra-class autocannon. Like all Ultra autocannons, it is capable of twice the rate of fire of a standard autocannon, doubling its heat output and, potentially, its damage. Only the brand new Clan HAG 40 can match the sheer damage output of the Ultra AC/20, though even that cannot place 20 points of damage squarely in one place. The only weapons that are capable of delivering more damage to one location are the Heavy Gauss Rifle and the experimental Improved Heavy Gauss.
