(Answered) VTOL External Racks
« on: 24 February 2022, 06:03:27 »
TO:AR, 4th printing, p. 106, VTOL Bombing
Quote
Like aerospace fighters, VTOLs may carry bombs on external racks, using those rules (see p. 245, TW).

May VTOLs also carry other loads (like Rocket Lauchers, TAG etc.) on external racks the same way as ASF do, or only bombs?

The list of items given in Total Warfare p. 246 is not changed for the TO implementation.  So, more than bombs.
