(Answered) Dropship/Jumpship/Warship Ammo
« on: 21 February 2012, 16:37:46 »
Just a quick question I can't seem to find an answer on.  While I know all DS/JS/WS weapons must have at least 10 shots, do they share ammo bays?

Like an AC20 w/10 shots in all 4 arcs on an aerodyne dropship, does that mean if all it ever fires out of is its front arc it gets 40 shots, or does that bay run out of ammo and the other bays still have their 10 shots?


EDIT:  Maybe a better way to ask this:

Can ammunition be shared on DS/WS/JS/SS between bays at *all*, or does it need to be unloaded, put in cargo, then reloaded for another bay to use it.

No. The bay contains the ammo, and it cannot share ammo between bays, even other bays in the same location.
