Are their any special rules concerning them or are they just a class of autocannon that takes more space and weight. I looked around my copy of armoured companies but couldnt find any rules the only difference i saw was Rapid Fire # projectile for the weapon type does the # mean that i has a modified rapid fire rule or is this just a typo

The rules are there, some where, but a bit unclear.

IIRC they can fire an additional shot at a -2 mod. but I could have sworn I saw some thing that allowed more than a fourth shot. IMHO the weight change is not worth a single extra shot.

Look at the notes under the second page of the weapons table.

A single additional shot when rapid firing at a penalty -2 applied to each shot (in addition to the -3 rapid fire penalty) seems weak for the additional mass and hard point. Allowing up to three extra shots at an additional -2 each would be reasonable.
