Default Re: Smart linking Turrets: If B-29 had them, then why not?

Thanks for feedback & opinion guys .

Our group ruled via 'Rule of Logic' that Cyberlinks & SWCs CAN'T be used in conjunction with Smartlinks & still retain their combat bonus .

As Cyberlinks are very rarely used in our games , it's doesn't effect us too much .

Due to the many multiple Turrets & Sponsons on larger vehicles , the amount of Smartlinks required to use them in any combination rises astronomically !

Example : Urban Assault Tank with 130 Space Hull , mounts 2x 4-Space Extendable Turrets TF , 2 Top Back & 4-Space Sponsons RF , LF , RB , LB & B - all armed with Long Barreled Blast Cannons . To fire them in any combo would take ... 187+ Smart links ... that's when I lost count ... ! 8-|

To solve problems like this , we came up with a Smartlink Computer : $10,000 no weight or Space . Any weapon Smart linked into the Computer ( standard Smartlink ) can be fired in any combination , even in two different directions at same time .
Thus on that Tank , 1 TF Turret & both Left Sponsons could fire at one Target & the other TF , both TB , the Right & the Back Sponson can be aimed at another to the back & right of it .

We also came up with a Link Computer : $500 ( or $750 / $1,000 ? ) , no weight or space . This acts in the same way for Standard Links .

Both these we've found are extremely useful for larger vehicles like Road Trains , Super Heavy Tanks , Large Transport Aircraft & Airships etc .
