Is the damage of the Grenade Launcher (Automatic) wrong?
« on: 04 January 2023, 20:36:04 »
According to the latest TM errata the Grenade Launcher (Automatic) on page 3 does 1.49 damage. 

However, when we use the formula in AToW Companion page 169-170, we (=daryk, lagrange, monbvol) get 0.99.  What is the right answer?

The calculation is:
There is no Anti-vehicle class B ordnance, so it's just an average of HE and Frag (=anti-personnel).   Average AP=(5+3)/2=4  Average BD =(8+10)/2=9.   Using these values, the formula is:
Penetration = 4/4=1
Damage = 9*(3.5+1(burst)+1(splash))=49.5
Reload factor = 1
TW damage = 1*49.5/50*1=0.99
