Not 100% if this should go here...
During the Forum outage when working on some equipment lists, I noticed that the Ammo for the Grenade launcher and Automatic Grenade launcher have been reversed.
The Grenade launcher has 20 shots, uses Class B (450g) and has an ammo weight of 4.5kg.
The Automatic Grenade launcher has 10 shots, also uses Class B rounds and an ammo weight of 9kg.

The number of shots should be reversed, so that the Grenade launcher has 10 and the Automatic has 20 (as such the listed ammo weight would match up with the number of shots).
Tech manual also lists them with 10 for the Grenade launcher and 20 for the Automatic.

Also why dose the light SRM have two shots? One would think that the Heavy should have two shots due to the weight of the ammo.

As you probably noticed, the new weapon tables in the lastest TM errata address much of this.  The rest will be dealt with in the upcoming AToW errata.  Thanks.
