On page 102 the book says that OS launchers do not explode when hit. Is this always the case? I thought that if the launcher was loaded, they'll still explode like a normal ammo explosion when struck? There's no reference to it again, even under the OS listing for the weapon class.

I didn't want to post this under Errata, since I'm not 100% sure about the ruling on this, so I'm asking here. I'm also posting here under general questions, because AFAIK, BMM is a core rulebook, but it doesn't have it's own subsection.

The BMM entry is correct.  This ruling is also found in the TW errata and the fifth printing of TW.

Okay, I've got an older printing of TW (pretty sure it's the 2nd print run), and forgot to check the Errata for that. Thanks for the prompt response.
