(Answered) Rocket Launcher accuracy rules location
« on: 29 December 2014, 22:30:51 »
I checked TM and it only had the entries for the missile weapons for heavy and BA weapons, which did not cite the accuracy. It referenced the tables in the back of the book, which also seemed to not have the accuracy issues noted and also have a ref (Pg98) in TW. Checked that and it doesn't mention missile weapons in that way on that page at all.

I'm trying to directly compare the "Modern" and Pentagon Powers RLs. Op Klondike mentions a Missile Hits Table Penalty, but not a to-hit.

Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Okay; I had the books wrong; to-hit modifiers for the basic weapons are in TW on pg 303, but *not* in either TM or TO.

it's -1 for both MRMs and RLs. The PP RLs should be the same, but worse according to Op: K with the addition of the missile hits table mods.

Does that all sound right?
