I too think this is an unrequired over complication. In MT it
clearly states it works as a hyper velocity penetrator in
bursts - analagous to a machine gun burst, Dacca Dacca Dacca.

The class just changes the calibre of the bullet/projectile
so here its analgous to:

class 1 is a .22
class 2 is a .303
class 3 is a .50.

And the damage done reflects the larger calibre round
having more energy when it hits the target.

Its not analagous to a shotgun or artillery (AKA trash can)
