(Answered) Motorised Batteries Auto Cannons
« on: 21 October 2021, 19:58:00 »

Just trying to clarify a rule in Alpha strike. I notice that the Taurian Field Gun Infantry have access to Autocannons AC 3/3/- yet the Alpha Strike rules state that infantry can’t use the AC special ammunition.

Is this an errata? And if not why is their access to AC listed?

Infantry units cannot use alternate munitions, but there are other effects tied to AC.  Effects on some armors (ballistic reinforced) and special pilot abilities tied to a unit having AC (Sandblaster).  It also means you have to rearm them when using Chaos Campaign.
