TO:AUE pg 230 gives the underwater ranges table for advanced weapons and notes LAMS also works on torpedoes

the last thing I remember reading what that laser antimissile systems have never worked remotely as well as conventional AM systems.    Has that changed?

they work the same as regular systems with the exception that if they reduce the cluster roll to under 2, it completely prevents damage. it also doesn't need ammo. its big disadvantage is that it produces seven heat when it activates

But do the heatsinks still get their extra bonuses for working underwater?

Or 5 heat for the Clan model.

Of course.  Why wouldn't they?
