(Answered) Rapid-Fire Protomech Autocannons
« on: 24 February 2024, 00:52:31 »
Just wanted to make sure I had this idea correctly before going and 'trying it at home'

Autocannon Rapid-Fire mode rules (Tactical Operations: Advanced Rules 6th printing, page 98) specify that:
"Any standard or light autocannon (not LB-X, Ultra or Rotary models) can fire any ammunition type legal to it at double the standard rate, as though it were an Ultra AC"

Protomech Autocannons are not on either list, but the rules for Protomech ACs (Tactical Operations: Advanced Units and Equipment 6th printing page 98) specify that:
"ProtoMech Autocannons use the same rules as standard autocannons, including the ability to use special munitions"

Because Protomech Autocannons use the same rules as Standard autocannons and are not explicitly listed in the list of autocannons that cannot use Rapid-Fire: that means that Protomech Autocannons can use those rapid fire optional rules, right?
