Default Still not getting weapon damage

I'm still not getting how weapon damage is calculated. For an example see the combat example on p. 227, book I:

The Zhodani flyer has a StdRaCT-11 Std Recoilless AutoCannon Turret -11 R=5 Cr45000 360 kg Pen-7

I can see the 7 Damage, but where the heck does the Penetration come from?

An AutoCannon (aC) does 5D, add 1D for Standard, and 1D for Recoilless. But nowhere on the GunMaker charts does it say this combination has Penetration.
General tabletop game and IT nerdery.
