I like the PAC's ... but I just realized a PAC-8 can't take down an elemental in one shot, not even a standard IS suit.  Anything smaller/lighter is fair game though.  Used in a point, I think it can do some damage, more so when utilizing alt ammo.

Does AP ammo have any additional effect against BA?

Since there's no standard rules for crits on BA, I would imagine not.

However, there are TacOps rules for BA crits based on the same unit in the point getting hit multiple times. Maybe utilize those rules a bit?

Unfortunately, on Protomechs, unless you *have* to use special munitions, improved Heavy Lasers are better than proto autocannons in almost every single way. I'll accept PACs on vees though
*Ugh* I only use single origin, fair trade, gluten-free organic hand-made artesinal SLDF vintage, you filthy mouth-breathing barbarian normie!

Well, even with 20 rounds of ammo, the PAC/8 comes out 1000kg lighter than a HLL.

I think that you should compare the PAC8 to the HML. The HALL does twice the damage at a greater range. Think about it

the HLL is going to require a butt load of extra HS though.  Not sure how bad that adds up on a proto.  (I know the PAC's are more of a flavor weapon, doesn't mean they damage you, just there are better alternatives.)
