The Hyper-Velocity Autocannon/10 is based on the Autocannon/10. While it has the same damage class, it is capable of firing much further. However, in order to obtain the increased ballistic range, the hyper-velocity ammo is larger, reducing the number of shots per ton of ammo. Like Ultra or Rotary autocannons, Hyper-Velocity autocannons are unable to make use of special munitions.[5][1]
