(Answered) BV of Infantry with AntiMech Skill of 8
« on: 28 January 2022, 15:08:44 »
Can someone help clarify something about BV and Infantry.

When you design infantry using Tech Manual they have a skill of Gunnery 4/ AntiMech 5.  If they have no AntiMech kit/training then you adjust the skill to 4/8.  Now I understand this to mean you have to multiply the BV by 0.85 (for 4/8).

e.g. a Foot Platoon (Rifle) with an AntiMech Kit at skill 4/5 is 90 BV. Should the Foot Platoon (Rifle) with no AntiMech Kit at skill 4/8 be 90 x 0.85 = 77??

Tech Manual pg 309

Also the MUL seems to have incorrect values for Infantry.  It lists Foot Infantry (Rifle) as 81 when it works out as 90 using rules in the Tech Manual

Is there something wrong with the way I’ve phrased this question? I would have though it’s a simple yes/no

So MegaMek is incorrect in the way it calculates the BV of 4/8 Infantry

I’ve let them know. Any plans to update the MUL?
