Beast-Mounted Infantry Damage Bonus
« on: 12 December 2018, 06:29:57 »
This is the companion question to the my other topic https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=63542.0 on Beast-Mounted Infantry.  The rules for converting Beast-Mounted Infantry damage (AToW Companion, p.134) give results different than what Tactical Operations lists.  This formula gives the Coventry Kangaroo, Orca, and Hipposaur damages of 0, 1D6, and 3D6.  In TO's Beast-Mounted table, these values are 1D6, 2D6, and 10D6.

1)   Does AToW's Creature Table (AToW, p.246), or does TO's Beast-Mounted Infantry Sample Types Table (TO, p.294), need errata correcting these values?

2)   If a Beast-Mounted Platoon is deployed in Squads, does each Squad still deal the stated Bonus Damage?

Lastly, errata is needed in AToW Companion under "Converting Creature Stats" and "Weight".  The formula for converting kilograms to tons has an extra 000 that should be removed.

Bump #2.  This rule is now found on p.106 in TO:AUE.  The AToW Companion pages are still the same.
