(Answered) Aero LB-X and Targeting Computers
« on: 15 December 2014, 10:59:56 »
In a round about fashion a recent discussion has caused me to have another question about ASFs and LB-X guns.

Since it has been established by this thread that ASFs always use cluster munitions this creates another potential issue specific to the use of Targeting Computers on ASFs.

Pretty sure I already know the answer to the question I'm about to ask but figure I best still ask anyway to make sure that there is no intention to give ASFs another exception.

Given the rules on Total Warfare page 143 and the ASF's inability to use anything other than cluster ammunition does that mean installing a Targeting Computer create essentially dead weight on the ASF in question?

Well kind of a bummer but considering what you can do with other weapons and targeting computers on ASFs anyway not unexpected.

Thanks for the answer.
