(Answered) (Errata) FLAK and Minimal Damage
« on: 30 October 2019, 10:00:19 »
I notice a lot of units are listed with the special of FLK0*/0*/0* (see Garm GRM-01A for an example). The rules for converting FLAK do not indicate making use of the minimal damage rule, as it does for Indirect Fire. It merely states you should round all sums normally, which for these cases would result in no FLK ability. Considering the number of units that have the FLK0*/0*/0* special ability (29 'Mechs), can I assume the description for FLK should be updated to include a similar note as is listed under IF (obviously reworded to work for FLK)?

"(If the unit’s Indirect Fire attack value, after heat-modification and before final damage rounding, is greater than 0, but less than 0.5, the unit receives an IF0* special, indicating that its indirect attack is subject to the Minimal Damage rule, see p. 18.)"

Your errata post on October 18th addressed the heat-modified damage discrepancy, but I think this may be another gap.
