(Answered) Aerospace Fighter Damage Threshold Calculations
« on: 05 November 2011, 10:55:25 »
I have read the rules in the TechManual, and looked through the eratta and I have been unable to find any reference to shed light on this question:

The way I interpret the rules on pg. 239 of TW "Each armor facing has a Damage Threshold equal to 10 percent of its full armor value, rounded up." when compared to a record sheet like that of the SYD-Z2B Seydlitz from RS3039 Unabridged for example where the Damage Threshold/Total Armor for each location are as follows:
Nose = 3/26
Right Wing = 2/16
Left Wing = 2/16
Aft = 3/22
is that the DT is calculated by dividing the LOCATIONS AF by ten and rounding up.  Otherwise with an overall AF of 80, each location would have a DT of 8 (or 2 if you took the AF80/10=DT8 and then divided that by 4 locations); but clearly this isn't the case.  (This version of the Seydlitz is not the only one; MANY fighters from RS3039 Unabridged follow this same format, as do all of the record sheets that print from Heavy Metal Aero)

Am I understanding and applying this correctly?

You are correct.
