How does Copperhead artillery damage work?
« on: 17 May 2021, 06:33:06 »
Page 167 of Tactical Operations Advanced Units and Equipment says:

Copperhead Artillery munitions function as Arrow IV homing missiles (see p. 166), with all appropriate modifiers and rules applied. The base damage
values for Copperhead rounds are listed in the Artillery Ordnance Table (see p. 152, TO: AR).

Which would suggest they use a similar damage split to homing arrows (full damage to target in one chunk, 5 to hex)

However damage notation for copperhead shells on Page 152 of Tactical Operations: Advanced rules notation is "*Damage number*(R0)" which would by that wording make it sound like this is damage it applies to entire hex as typical artillery shells.

So how exactly does copperhead damage work?
