The GAU-10/A Heavy Autocannon (HAC) is an anti-personnel weapon in service with the United Nations Space Command.[1][2][3]


Design details[edit]

A pair of twin-linked GAU-10/A heavy autocannons are mounted on the standard production model of the AV-30 Kestrel,[2] on either side of the cockpit. These autocannons have a high rate of fire and are capable of doing significant damage against Covenant infantry and vehicles, such as the Karo'etba-pattern Ghost.[4]


The GAU-10/A was employed on a Kestrel used during the Battle of Installation 03.[4]
