(Answered) BOMB Load Amounts
« on: 24 October 2016, 11:55:13 »
Pg. 78, second printing (PDF)

The issue is the following paragraph, under Alternate Bomb Munitions:
Quote
Arrow IV Missiles: A special exception to the above, standard,
homing, and air-to-air Arrow IV missiles reduce the total number
of bomb slots an airborne unit has by 1. Additional Arrow IV
missiles, and all other bomb types (including the light air-toair
Arrow IV) occupy 1 slot each. Thus, an aerospace unit with
the BOMB8 special may carry up to 7 Arrow IV missiles, or 1
Arrow IV missile and 6 bombs of other types, or 8 non-Arrow IV
missile bombs.

The issue is obvious, I think; no ASF has higher than BOMB3 anymore, which means these numbers are... fairly off.

Kansas City players, or people who are just passing through the area, come join us at the Geekery just off Shawnee Mission Parkway for BattleTech!  Current days are Tuesdays in the afternoon and evening.  I can't make every single week, but odds are pretty good that somebody will be there.
