Default basalisk direct fire

Hay i just havent been able to figure this out. in the guard codex it states that the basalisk earthshaker cannon is "36-240" S9 AP3, ordanance barrage1 large blast. but in the basalisk descripiton it states it can be "utilised as a direct fire gun, engaging targets at short range with devasting results."
What changes if you use it as a direct fire gun?

With direct fire you lose the minimum range, although i would still recommend not firing withing 15 inches, as your own shot will make light work of the Bassie.
