Fair idea (and one I was thinking of myself) but it does mean that people who joined a battle with command specced 'mech (probably medium or the like to get more module slots) but don't get command slot get kicked in the head bad. He may even become more of a liability than asset for the team.
I was under the impression the prospective Abrams autoloaders are in the 6-7 rounds a minute ballpark? Human loader can do bit faster burst but gets tired.
30 rounds a minute is just nuts regardless. On tank anyway, those unmanned main guns of similar caliber on naval vessels can pull that off. Some of them, at least.
