(Answered) Support vehicles with ICE and TAG
« on: 31 March 2023, 00:12:31 »
TW, pg. 136.  A 10-ton, ICE-powered Support VTOL wants to mount a TAG.

The issues are;

1. The Tag requires gunners and a fire-control system because it has a to-hit roll and has a range greater than one (TW, pg 137, 'Weapons and ammunition').  Is this reasoning correct?

2. The TAG system, because it is on the Heavy Weapons and Equipment chart (TW, pg. 342) under the heading, 'Special Equipment', does not require Power amplifiers.  Is this reasoning correct?

(Sorry, I just couldn't figure out how to ask this, there's no similar units to compare on the MUL or MML, and I can't find anything under Power Amps, TAG, or Fire Control to confirm it.)
