Description[edit]

The Ultra AC/10 (also UAC/10) was the second largest of the Ultra autocannons. First introduced into the Inner Sphere by the Clans, Free Worlds League scientists were the first to reverse engineer the weapon and make it viable for mass-production, though the knowledge quickly spread to the other Successor States. The weapon itself was capable of firing two shots per turn, like all Ultra autocannons, resulting in doubled heat and—potentially—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/10. Experimental prototype versions of this new weapon were used during Operation KLONDIKE in small quantities. The Clan prototype Ultra AC/10 available during this period had identical stats to the Inner Sphere Ultra AC/10, though the latter required additional mounting space and jammed more frequently.[3]
