According to the Construction Rules for Ground-Mobile HPGs in TacOps, p. 330:

Quote
Mobile HPGs [including Ground-Mobile HPGs] may not be pod-mounted on Omni-units.

However, the Septicemia (Pariah) Z pod-mounts a Ground-Mobile HPG, per WoR Supp, p. 70.

Is TacOps in error and Ground-Mobile HPGs can be pod-mounted on Omni-units?

Or is the Sep Z an illegal design?

There is no errata for this issue in the current version (v3.4) of the TacOps Errata.

There is no compiled errata for WoR Supp yet, and this issue does not appear to have been addressed in any of the candidate errata.

Thanks for any insight or decision.

The Septicemia is in error: the item cannot be pod-mounted.

I was in fact in error: I had missed the distinction between mobile HPGs and ground-mobile HPGs.  The Septicemia is fine.

Thanks much for the Tac Ops correction.
