Autoloaders aren't used because they are faster (because they usually aren't), they are used to reduce size and weight, especially weight.
Your number of <5 seconds cycle time makes me rather suspicious.
First, the cycle time, minimum, is around 6-6.5 seconds from all sources I could find.
I do not say they are right or wrong, yet they stand in stark contrast to your so far unsupported claim of <5 seconds.
The only 'source' I could find that supports the <5 seconds cycle time claim is Wikipedia - with no source being linked/named to back it up.
Also, everything I find on the T-80UM supports a rate of fire of 6-8 rounds per minute.
Are my information wrong, maybe?
