Description[edit]

The Ultra AC/2 (also UAC/2) was the smallest bore autocannon of the Ultra series. Ultra autocannon were capable of firing twice in a turn, doubling heat and—potentially—damage. Since it was the smallest, the Ultra AC/2 also had the longest range and most ammo per ton of any Ultra autocannon; however, it also dealt 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 AC/2. Experimental prototype versions of this new weapon were used during Operation KLONDIKE in small quantities. The Clan prototype Ultra AC/2 available during this period had identical stats in comparison to the Inner Sphere Ultra AC/2, though the latter took up additional mounting space and was more prone to jame.[3]

Models[edit]

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

Mydron Model D-rf[edit]

The Model D-rf fired 20mm hyper-velocity depleted uranium-tipped shells[4]
