(Answered) Artemis FCS & Narc-Equipped Missiles TW vs BMM
« on: 22 December 2023, 15:10:14 »
Can you shoot from LRM + Artemis IV/V FCS Launcher with Narc-Equipped Missile ?
Reading Total Warfare and Battlemech Manual i found different answers .

Battlemech Manual (6th + Errata, page 110)
ARTEMIS IV/V
FIRE-CONTROL SYSTEM
...
An Artemis FCS cannot be used with Streak launchers or Narc-equipped
missiles
(!!!). It can be used with other specialty munitions,
but those munitions will not gain the benefits of the Artemis system.
Artemis may also be used with OS missile launchers.

Total Warfare (9th + errata , p130) :
ARTEMIS IV FCS
...
Special Munitions: Artemis IV cannot be used with Streak SRM
or Narc missile beacon munitions (!!!). It can be used with any other
kind of special munitions, but those munitions do not gain any
benefits from the Artemis IV. The system may be used with oneshot
(OS) missile packs.

Narc missile beacon munitions and Narc-equipped missiles are different things . Where is the truth ?

P.S If answer in no , what happened in this situation when ARTEMIS FCS got critical hit ?

"missile beacon munitions" is referring to Narc-equipped missiles.  It's just confusing because TW refers to them in at least three different fashions.  Generic Narc pods are not considered special munitions, which is why they're not listed in the Special Munitions section of TW on pages 140-142.

The BMM wording is how both entries are meant to be read.

So, can I fire Narc-equipped missiles from artemis launchers without benefits of the artemis system?
