(Answered) Quad Talons & Hull Landings
« on: 21 May 2022, 23:37:21 »
Per p. 23, BattleMechs using both claws and talons gain a -2 when attempting to land on the hull of a large craft according to the Hull Landing Modifiers Table. As quadruped 'Mechs lack arms, they cannot mount claws, but instead can mount four talons. Both have essentially sharp actuators on each limb, so should quadruped 'Mechs with talons receive the same benefits, or do they still only gain the -1 for having talons?
