Indeed, Bombardment Cannons far outstrip Lance Turrets at effectiveness in general even without any special buffs.
Bombardment Cannons also got to keep their full Armor Piercing ability (treat enemy armor as 25) even though Macro AP ammo was adjusted, so Lances don't outstrip them against heavily armored enemies either.

Icing on the cake is the ridiculously high Critical Chance on the Bombardment Cannons, which works even better with Lock On Special Orders.. and the Crit just goes crazy with Chapter Master-boosted Lock On.

Lastly, although they do not have 100% accuracy like Lances, they actually end up with a higher chance to hit against Eldar ships with Holofields that are moving at top speed.


As a completely irrelevant aside, the BCs keeping their full Armor Piercing is because in the original tabletop game, they always caused damage on a 4+ regardless of enemy armor, just like Lances. And their high Crit in the video game is because, in the tabletop, they scored crits on a 4+ (50% crit chance), whereas other weapons required a 6+ (16.7% crit chance).

So yeah, they do kick ass.
Don't take the Lance-armed Battle Barge, ever.
