The AH-1 Cobra helicopter had multiple options for the weapons mounted in its front chin turret. One weapon was a three-barrel, 20mm electric automatic cannon.

The Autocannon inflicts 3d6 per shot. The Heavy Autocannon/Rapid-Fire Tank Gun inflicts 6d6 per shot.

GURPS has fun effects for different ammunition types such as HEAT and HESH. The rules are more detailed than those in Car Wars but they do offer interesting tactics.

Yeah, I was thinking of the Cobra and got it confused with the Apache. Thanks for the clarification. Based on previous posts the Car Wars' autocannon sounds like your standard single barrel repeating weapon.
