(Answered) Angel ECM and Boosted C3
« on: 17 August 2015, 17:15:57 »
Quote from: Angel ECM, AS pg 46
Angel ECM (AECM)
An Angel ECM suite has all the advantages of a standard ECM
suite. Angel ECM is treated as two standard ECM suites.

Quote from: Boosted C3, AS pg 51
C3 Boosted Systems (C3BSM# or C3BSS)
The C3 boosted system works identically to a standard C3
system, and links one master unit (noted by C3BSM) with up
to four slaves (noted by C3BSS). These boosted C3 units are
unaffected by most ECM effects. Only a hostile Angel ECM will
affect a boosted C3 network in the same way as other ECMs
affect standard C3 systems.

Question:  If an Angel ECM is set to generate both ECM and ECCM at the same time, will its resulting "half strength" ECM field still cut Boosted C3 networks?
Related question: If there are as many friendly ECCM fields generated by standard ECM as there are hostile ECM fields from an Angel ECM affecting an area a Boosted C3 draws a line through, does the Angel ECM still cut Boosted C3 despite ECCM from non-Angel ECMs?

Spinoff question I only noticed after submitting this post:  Shouldn't the rule for boosted C3 read "The C3 boosted system works identically to a standard C3 system, and links one master unit (noted by C3BSM) with up to three slaves (noted by C3BSS)."

No.  An Angel ECM set to split ECM and ECCM would not cut a boosted c3 link, or have any other effects requiring an Angel ECM.

And yes, the c3 boosted system should say three slaves, not four.

Errata for both coming up.
