Title: (Answered) Arrow IV standard ammunition
Post by: PuppyLikesLaserPointers on 27 February 2021, 04:52:11
Artillery Ordnance Table(184.TO) says High-Explosive is the standard ammunition type(High-Explosive type have the bracket '(standard)' beside of it suggests that it is the standard round), and it is available for Long Tom, Sniper, and Thumper. But Arrow IV is not allowed to use it.

And by Weapons and Equipment of Space Combat(237.TW) Aerospace units are not able to use any special ammunition(beside Artemis compatible rounds or cluster for LB-X).

Then what is the 'standard' ammunition for Arrow IV, and only allowed type of ammunition of aerospace units with Arrow IV? Arrow IV Non-Homing Missile? Or Arrow IV Homing Missile?

Also, although it is obvious, but High-Explosive is the standard ammunition of Long Tom, Sniper, and Thumper, right?

Monthly bump. Also, is it correct that Aerospace units are not able to use any non-standard round, right?

The new TacOps errata should hopefully address this issue.
