The AC 2 is a fast-firing Autocannon that does low damage per shot but can reach out to very long ranges.

The AC 2 roughly halves the damage of the AC 5 for the ability to shoot faster and farther. At six tons, the weight of the AC 2 is quite light for an Autocannon. Each ton of ammo yields 75 rounds. But due to the AC 2s very fast recycle rate, even 75 rounds rarely last even a short skirmish when fired continuously.

Notable users of the AC/2 include the Blackjack BJ-1 and the Dragon DRG-1C.
