(Answered) TAG & Improved Targeting Quirk
« on: 08 March 2020, 12:01:04 »
Is the TAG attack affected by the Improved Targeting Quirk (page 84 of BMM):

Quote
The ’Mech has advanced targeting capabilities in one range
bracket. The quirk can be applied up to three times, but can be
taken only once per range bracket. The cost of the quirk varies with
the range bracket chosen. All ranged attack Target Numbers at the
selected range bracket receive a –1 modifier.

It's hard to say one way or the other as TAG is not affected by a Targeting computer (page 113):

Quote
To designate a target with TAG, calculate the Target Number as
for a standard weapon attack (TAG does not benefit from a targeting
computer
).

But then, neither does missiles which would gain the benefit of the Improved Targeting Quirk.
