There is no pride in deploying an HV autocannon. Only punishment ;)

Now swap it for an UAC-10 - problematic as it is - and you don't need barrier troops to force your armour crews into the vehicle.

I know it's decades too late, but HVAC should bust and not blow up, and you should be able to unjam UACs like RACs, but this is the universe we have ...
* No, FASA wasn't big on errata - ColBosch
* The Housebook series is from the 80's and is the foundation of Btech, the 80's heart wrapped in heavy metal that beats to this day - Sigma
* To sum it up: FASAnomics: By Cthulhu, for Cthulhu - Moonsword
* Because Battletech is a conspiracy by Habsburg & Bourbon pretenders - MadCapellan
* The Hellbringer is cool, either way. It's not cool because it's bad, it's cool because it's bad with balls - Nightsky
* It was a glorious time for people who felt that we didn't have enough Marauder variants - HABeas2, re "Empires Aflame"

Somewhere on the list of Top Ten House Rule, IIRC
but this is the universe we have ...
And in the cold, hard vacuum of space, we have ghost stories … :wink:
