Which would be an issue if our Salamander didn't already trounce the daybreaker raider. A new autocannon isn't going to exactly help them kill more daybreakers, especially if the larger gun does slow down the turret's turn rate.
The Marauder has a proper cannon on it, though. I don't believe the Salamander beats it.

Actually, thinking about it, whilst I think a flamethrower upgrade would be really useful, and something to keep in mind, the effect that improving our AC would have in every theatre is worth it.

The Marauder has a larger cannon, but no armor. Hence, our faster autocannons shred them.

Reread the quote. The Salamander beats the Marauder assuming equal numbers, but in situations where the Marauder is cheaper the advantage goes to Cannala.

Also, what ebbor said, the AC-41 is not intended to be bigger or heavier than the AC-18, just more efficient allowing it to fire faster and more powerfully.

Don't forget the enemy will probably fix their hrlis this turn, and Autocannons are our answer to that.

I disagree with ebbor and think Cannala is making a new jet fighter this turn, but the magic of the autocannon is that it answers that too! (somewhat)

It doesn't quite follow the naming convention, though.  Needs something catchy.  Like..."Peacekeeper".  Or anything else, really.

It also helps against the torpedoboats that will likely try to sink our stuff.

Taricus, may want to specify the targeting computer works with all our artillery and for long range shots from our tanks.  At least include the B2.

Ebbor, why not specify the autocannon uses a revolver autocannon system?
