?'''Automatic Cannon''' - Rapid-fire (burst-fire in the game) weapon of 20mm or lower caliber, but unlike machine guns, they fire shells instead of bullets. Typically shortened to "auto-cannons". Used in early-war light tanks to give them an edge versus their (by then) machine gun-armed opponents. However, auto-cannons rapidly fell behind in the shell-vs-armor race and quickly became used only by few specialized German reconnaissance vehicles. However, automatic cannons vastly expanded in the region of anti-aircraft defense.+'''Autoloader''' - An automatic loading mechanism first used by the French, and exclusively used by French tanks during the time period covered in the game. Tanks with an [[Automatic Loader|autoloader]] are capable of firing several shots in rapid succession, drawing rounds from a magazine. These are not to be confused with an [[Automatic_Loader#Automatic_Cannon|auto-cannon]], as these fire single shots from full-size cannons. When the magazine is used up, the crew member filling the Loader position must then refill the magazine. This can take some time, so taking shelter behind cover while reloading is recommended. Some modern (not in game) autoloaders are capable of drawing ammunition directly from the ammo rack, completely eliminating the need for a crew member to load ammo.

 '''Gun, Conical''' - Usually referred to as taper-bore or squeezebore gun, it was a special category of anti-tank guns designed to provide high penetration without the use of special (and expensive) materials such as tungsten carbide, as well as to remove range limitations of APCR projectiles. Taper-bore guns used barrel with changing diameter, from original caliber to significantly smaller one, thus reducing the cross-section and drag of the projectile to extend its effective range. '''Gun, Conical''' - Usually referred to as taper-bore or squeezebore gun, it was a special category of anti-tank guns designed to provide high penetration without the use of special (and expensive) materials such as tungsten carbide, as well as to remove range limitations of APCR projectiles.

 '''Howitzer''' - Artillery weapon, with short barrel and low muzzle velocity, usually using separate charges. It was designed for high-register firing (above 45°), and thus to fire over hills and other obstacles. Howitzers are relatively light and share carriages with smaller guns - for example the carriages for the US 155mm Field Gun and 8" Howitzer were the same. '''Howitzer''' - Artillery weapon, with short barrel and low muzzle velocity, usually using separate charges.
