(Answered) Non-infantry units with Range 0 weapons
« on: 18 March 2021, 08:59:40 »
Total War pg 126 states that non-infantry units may not fire on targets in their own hex, with the exception of weapons with the PB tag, such as A-Pods.

The Trike detailed on page 59 of TRO Irregulars is equipped solely with an infantry-grade Heavy Flamer, which has range brackets of 0/-/-. Is the Trike unable to fire its weapon in TW-scale combat?

TechManual, page 136, Weapons and Ammunition, the paragraph beginning with "To find the weapon's Short, Medium, and Long Range values...":

At the end of the paragraph, add the following sentence:

    Non-melee weapons with a Base Range of 0 use a Short Range of 0, Medium Range of 1, and Long Range of 2.
