(Answered UPDATED) Protomech ERPPC
« on: 06 August 2012, 15:44:00 »
Can protomechs use ERPPCs? I made an ultra that can fit it. The big chart in Tech Manual has it listed as NA, but I think that was before Wars of Reaving, so the 9.75 ton of ERPPC + QHS couldn't fit on any proto obviously. When I go to page 234 and look at the entry on PPCs however, it says nothing about restrictions for protomechs, in contrast to the next page for plasma weapons which says protos can't have plasma. (That part was later errata'd out)

So, can a proto have an ERPPC as a weapon?

So, researching? Does that mean you don't know either?

Of course.  If we knew the answer we wouldn't be researching it.

In other news, an emergency supply of mittens is being shipped to hell.


Upon further review, it's been decided to go with a simpler guideline for weapons on Protomechs.  Here is the final ruling:

Any weapon that occupies 6 or fewer critical spaces on a Mech can fit on a Protomech (unless expressly forbidden otherwise, and so long as it meets all the other already-existing requirements: weight limits etc).  The next errata release will feature the proper corrections - for now you can find the newly-available weapons in the TechManual errata thread.
