 EVE Online | EVE Insider | Forums
Autocannons would become a viable alternative to blasters, requiring (on the whole) lower cpu and power amounts.
Autocannons DO have good points: minimal cap use, low fitting requirements, and better range than a blaster (though not by much post-patch).
By upgrading the 'worst' autocannon to the damage modifier and cpu/power requirements of the current 'best' one (for each weapon size), and upgrade the others like I have posted above, there is still a low cpu/power requiring autocannon (125mm gatling, dual 180mm, dual 425mm), but there are much better ones for pilots to use too.

I think the problem comes in that Leman Russ Tanks are armed with a large ordanance weapon umlike most 'Modern' tanks which seem to be more like SM Predators; Large/moderate calibre guns but accurate enough for tank hunting.
closest to a autocannon in real life is the 30-40mil cannons used on APC's, which are good against light armour and have a good rate of fire(like the a/c).
