Story: While fighting the harder Rempant fixed biters, it became obvious that tanks of various kinds lack mid-range fire support that other lower-tier units could not offer. While used with other lesser/more armored units - the ALR-AC may provide a significant increase of firepower against bigger than small biters. The suppressive ammunition of the widest used category may be used in many other weapon systems.
In terms of damage dealing efficiency, the cannon damage multiplier works best with various area-effect upgraded ammunition.
Firing rate, range and damage multiplier can be adjusted in the mod settings to fit various environements.

N.B.: The balance will be refined/shifted as if the ALR-AC is made too "good" in it's intended role - it starts making tanks useless... Untill the DPS changes go live - one may adjust DPS via the mod settings menu.
