Sidecars are built separately from cycles and are allowed to have different armor types. Maybe that shouldn't include sloping, but I'm not too motivated about it since I'd rather have a trike than a cycle+sidecar.

It's still there in the UACFH. Turret Sidecars have an extra space in which you could put an item with DP, so you might want to protect it.

Oddly enough, the SJG folks have been working on a complete revamp of the game! :)

Resurrecting an old comment, but the rules explicitly say no dropped weapons on the front half of a semi trailer or bus (and corner mounts only allow dropped weapons, therefore no front corner mounts).

The rules say "Any car, cycle, or trike with racing slicks on all its wheels..." which suggests to me that a cycle can have a front slick.

I'm know I'm doing something wrong, most of the tick boxes aren't working for me and I want to play with badly designed bicycles.

I've tried different browsers, upgraded to Windows 10, done virus things, made appropriate burnt offerings and sworn to/at various cybergods, but still can't get the boxes to work!

Could you help me out please?

Many thanks

Oz

Gas Weapons & Dropped Weapons are two different things . See pages 44-45 of CWC 2.5 :
"Dropped Weapons
Minsdroppers, Spikedroppers, Oil Jets and
Flaming Oil Jets are dropped weapons.

The Quinine Trailer from page 50 of VG2 has Smokescreens with two mags each mounted LF, RF, LB, RB and B , along with an MG in each of those locations .
