Title: (Research) Blocked Firing Arcs in a Tractor/Trailer Chain
Post by: CVB on 01 September 2021, 07:21:33
Tech Manual, 4th printing, (c)2020, p. 107, Section "STEP 5: ADD WEAPONS, AMMUNITION AND OTHER EQUIPMENT", left column, 3rd paragraph
Quote
Tractor/Trailer units may not fire into any arc that would hit another unit in their “chain”. For instance, a Tractor with a rear-mounted hitch may not fire into its Rear arc while towing Trailers, and armed Trailers with hitches in both the front and back may not fire into either of those arcs if units are attached at both ends.

Does this also apply

Side note: the quoted paragraph is clearly a rule about combat, not construction. Wouldn't it be better placed in TW or TO:AR?

Thanks in advance!

Friendly confirmation that I'm still interested in an answer.
