Some infantry equipment questions.
« on: 02 May 2015, 08:36:25 »

I understand what the armor divsor does.  so I'm good on that.
What are the table top effects of Camo sneak suits?  can my troops ware armor also?
can towed field gun AC use specility ammo?
also where can I find the damage for the Man pack ppcs?  I have the old TRO but i'm having a hard time finding the battletech scale damage for the manpack PPC.

To answer your questions in order:

Camo suits work just like mimetic armor. The details are in TacOps, page 318.

Armor on top of sneak suits? No. Only one type of 'armor' at a time, and camo suits count as 'armor'.

I think so, yes. Might want to check the rules forum to make sure.

Tech Manual, pg. 351. 99% sure you want Semi-Portable PPCs, since Support PPCs are small vehicles unto themselves.
