Potential conversion issue LRM ability.

CPLT-C1 Catapult.

Hey there I think there is a potential issue on the LRM ability conversion for the Catapult C1

Based on

ASC Page 126

Conversion: A unit receives this special if it carries any number of standard or enhanced LRM and/or MML launchers that, when combined, are capable of delivering 1 or more points of damage

at Medium range after heat-modification and before final damage rounding.

June 2018 errata page 9 ASC Page 101

Damage Subtotal: A unit’s total damage at a given range bracket modified by everything except heat (such as ammunition or targeting computers).

**No rounding is applied.**• Heat-Modified Damage: Any unit whose heat production is significantly greater than its dissipation will have to reduce its damage. This process is covered in Converting Heat (see p. 115). However, even if the unit does not reduce its damage due to heat, or even if the unit does not track heat at all, the damage subtotals are rounded to the nearest tenth and the results are still referred to as the unit’s heat-modified damage.

Ammunition page 101

For each ballistic or missile weapon, divide the number of shots for that weapon the unit carries by the number of such weapons on the unit. If the result is less than 10, the damage value for each such weapon must be multiplied by 0.75, with the following additional conditions.

Calculations

Base damage LRM medium range 2 x 0.9 = 1.8

Ammunition modifier 16 reloads / 2 launchers = 8 shots per launcher < 10 ammo modifier applies

Ammo modified damage 1.8 × 0.75 = 1.35

To verify if the minimum damage threshold (1) for the LRM ability is reached, we need to apply modification by heat to the non rounded damage value (1.35).

Heat modified damage (1.35×15)÷(26-4)

=0.9204545455

As the LRM conversion rule states

**after heat-modification and before final damage rounding** 0.9204545455<1

We do not reach the threshold therefore no LRM ability should be assigned to the Catapult unless there is some rounding hidden somewhere

Thanks
