I have a 4 Autocannon Havok squad in my Chaos Army which I use as either Alpha Legion or Black Legion depending on my mood. I want to add a second squad as part of my 2000 point list. My question is what to equip them with. I've got the following other units:
Fabius Bile or CC Lord
Flying Kai gun LT
8 Berserkers (Furious Charge, Chainaxes, AC w/Str., Banner of Rage & Talisman)
2 squads of 8 Enhanced Infiltrating CSM (Plasma pistols, AC w/Fist & Str)
2 squads of 8 Infiltrating CSM (Plasma gun/H. Bolter, AC w/Fist)
8 Tankhunting Havoks (MoCU, 4 Autocannon, AC w/Fist)
So, which of the following would be best:
1. Another Tankhunting AC squad
2. A Tankhunting Missle Launcher squad
3. A Tankhunting squad with 2 AC and 2 ML
4. A Tankhunting Noise Marine squad w/4 Blastmaster (with or without Sonic Blasters)
On a side note, anything other than the Noise Marine squad would allow me to add a unit of 6-8 Demonettes if I dropped Infiltrating from the non-enhanced CSM squads. Probably a good idea given my relatively low number of troops.

Personally I have had a lot of succes with a 4 HB havoc sqaud, they provide a solid counter to horde armies ( that is if you face them alot ), otherwise you might want to check for a havoc sqaud with 4 ML and tankhunter.
4 HB havoks is a good idea it works great against hordes and with against MEQ's makes them have to fail a saves sooner or later with the volume of shots.
But yeah prob 4 ML with tankhunters is your best bet.

It doesn't think, it doesn't feel,
It doesn't laugh or cry.
All it does, from dusk 'till dawn,
Is make the soldiers die.

I've been considering a HB Havok squad (possibly with Tankhunter) since I have 3 of them already. If I picked up 1 mor Hvy. Bolter and 1 more Plasmagun, I could go with 2 Plasmaguns in each fire support squad and the HBs for the Havoks. My only problem is the high cost (x3 as opposed to x2) of putting them in the Havok squads and the lack of ranged AT in my force.
I think you would benefit from another sqaud to kill heavy armor (like every one else suggested). It depends a bit on your regular opponents, though.
Personally I would suggest going for 4 Lascannons and Tankhunters if you can.
Shut up and play.
That's some bad advice about taking 4LC with tankhunter, it costs way to many points, don't even go near it.
Your right about the autocannons, I make a lot of use of them still it doesn't hurt to have a sqaud with a different weapon just incase you rin into something else than you expected.
Still 4 ML with tankhunter is a solid choice for their cost, able to take on tanks and infantry with ease and with a good range to boot.
If your really lacking in anti-tank then 4 ML is the best way to go.
a the 2000 point mark, you're still a little weak when it comes to tank busting- not much...just a little. Go ahead and take another autocannon tank-hunting squad. I use two in my 1850 build, and they are always firing at something.

I think an excellent complement to the already existing army would be either another of the same tank hunting autocnnons. 16 autocannon shots REALLY gives you some great versatility against tanks or hordes, I use two AC squads as well, though they enter my list at 1500, and I have 6-man versions at 1000.
I also like the missile launcher havocs to mix it up. They do very well too.
Did I see MoK on your havocs? is that Mark of Khorne, or am I daft? Khorney men don't use heavy weapons, silly it just wouldn't look right either.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I'm liking the missile launcher havoc mix up.
But, true to my self imposed reputation, plasma havocs with a powerfist champ.
All the tank hunting prowess of autocannons on the move PLUS guaranteed terminator stoppers.
fizzle fizzle splot, i'm melting!
