A small caliber autocannon with a good range for such a light weapon. Designed to weaken enemy shields, especially effective against weaker generators.

Usually manufactured with small bores perfect for medium- to long-range. The weapon fires high velocity kinetic rounds designed to overload enemy shields with ease. Features an autoloader and is liquid cooled.

Excellent fire support weapon for smaller craft. Poor mount turn rate makes it a bad choice vs fighters and missiles.
