(Answered) Trailer questions
« on: 19 November 2011, 10:42:13 »
...I want to use the tractor/trailer concept to add firepower to my tanks.

My design pulls 4 trailers.  Does the vehicle need to remain motionless in the Movement Phase to fire in the Firing Phase?  If the tractor has a C3 Slave, do all the weapons on the trailers benefit?

Can the trailers be separated from the tow vehicle and still function, given targeting information and power?  For example, my 4 trailers are arranged in an 'X', with the tractor vehicle in the middle and separated by 1 hex.  Cables carry T&T information and power to the trailers.  Will it work?  Can the C3 link the 4 trailers under under those circumstances?

1. Does the vehicle need to remain motionless in the Movement Phase to fire in the Firing Phase?
A: No.

2. If the tractor has a C3 Slave, do all the weapons on the trailers benefit?
A: None of them benefit.  Each needs their own way to connect to a C3 network.

3. Can the trailers be separated from the tow vehicle and still function, given targeting information and power?
A. Only if they have a crew and a means to power the weapons.

4: For example, my 4 trailers are arranged in an 'X', with the tractor vehicle in the middle and separated by 1 hex.  Cables carry T&T information and power to the trailers.  Will it work?  Can the C3 link the 4 trailers under under those circumstances?
A: No and no.
