Autocannon Part Card
This is a premium Techniconica Part Card which will enable you to play the game of Techniconica or expand your existing collection of Part.
Each card is printed on thick card stock and should, with care, last a long time and serve you well in your battles!
Each Card represents a single piece of a Mech and each card does a specific job for your Mech. Power Plants generate power, Cockpits house the pilot, Weapons are used to fight with and Locomotors are used to give your Mechs mobility.
This part is a Weapon type card and is used to attack other Mechs with and hopefully deal some damage to them. Afterall, without a weapon, a Mech is little more than a moving target to be attacked and destroyed with impunity.
This part has a Weight of 2, a Power Consumption of 1 as well an Armour rating of 2 and a Damage Threshold of 1. For a view a detailed breakdown of the cards stats, click here.

The autocannon has a long service record dating back to the days of when the Generational ships landed on Techniconica - they were used to colonise the planet and remove any wild life that were deemed too hostile or loathsome to be allowed to continue to exist when the planet was colonised.
Each autocannon was originally manufactured on the Generation ship, although planet-side manufactories begun producing the weapon in vast numbers, which quickly saw the value of the weapon plummet of the open weapons markets, even if the weapon itself was solid performer by all accounts.
The twin barrelled autocannon fires depleted uranium slugs that are designed to penetrate armour and create as much damage as possible.
The cannon itself is fully capable of firing in fully automatic mode, although most Mech pilots switch to semi-automatic mode in a bid to converse the expensive ammo and curb the thermal degeneration of the two barrels - which is hastened by rapid repeated firing.
The weapon also has a fearsome recoil and requires substantial recoil compensation to be fully effective on the battlefield, although this is of little consequence when mounted on a Mech.
