Autocannons are better against med/light vehicles, and creatures with high toughness, but average/poor saves.

In short, it's down to personal preference.

Right cos its another quite a bitty outlay considering Forgeworld do a minimum order of 10, or I could convert, cos It looks cool but I dont want it if its not gonna do anything for me in battle, the 48" range was what i was looking at because the chimera mounted squads in my army will be used for counter-attacking

you could try to convert using the heavy weapon team autocannon. i think it would be pretty cool to put on a chimera.it would be a lot more like a modern apc

Go for the twin heavy bolters! they look great and are so much more acurate ive got them on all 8 of my chimeras.

i wouldnt. the multi laser and auto cannon are more useful since they pack more punch which helps agaist the more powerful opponents.
