Default Hamerhead Railgun Question

So when you have a railgun on a hammerhead do you need to specify what type of ammunition it uses before the game and then it is static, or can you switch between the two ammunition types throughout the game?

The Railgun can switch between shots in mid-game. This is a god-send as it makes the gun much more versatile; in a similar way to real-life tanks loading their gun with an armour piercing Sabot shell, then loading a high-explosive shell in the heat of battle. ;D

Darn, SDFarsight posted in the middle of my writing. Oh well, anyways he hit the nail right on the head you can switch midgame which is very useful.
Imagine some Space Marines rapping this, to the tune of Riding Dirty:

They see him rolling,
They hating,
Patroling and trying to fix him with a dark lance,
Trying to fix him with with a dark lance
Trying to fix him with with a dark lance
Fix him with a dark lance,
Try to fix him with a dark lance.

Rolling up 'cos I'm a Space Marine,
Heavy armour so it ain't hard to be seen, I ride, ride and they see me lean, Soritas and a TV screen, Yeah the Canoness, she likes cola, Mixed in a stolen drone controller, But then I just try to hold her, One smack and great, I'm in a coma
