It's actually irrelevant in any case. What's important is _when_ it occurs. Regardless of it being during your movement phase or your firing phase, it still happens during your _turn_. The only thing that matters is the "after a full turn" before it recovers. The net result is the same, even if you try to muddy the waters nitpicking over whether a ram is combat or not (which it isn't).
So I had it right, worded it poorly, got confused by the correction, made the problem worse by overthinking it, and now we're back to where we started.

Yup, it's Monday.

You got that right. Monday the 13th; that's a thing, right? :-)

If it isn't, it should be! ;)

Yes, I agree.

I'll drop this here.

I just noticed that in the Battle Box Rules (Page 26, on both PDF and printed versions), on the SHVY record sheet, the text says 2 AP, yet the artwork shows four check boxes.

That is the miniatures version of the SHVY after conversion to inches . . .

Sorry for being a wise *ss. That looks like a good observation.

I was thinking it was just the marketing materials to sell the SHVY as being more powerful than it really is... :P

That's what we need, a more-powerful SHVY.

Oh, I totally agree. But can't you just see whoever was building the original SHVY doing a dog-and-pony show for the brass, showing that picture and saying, "It's our answer to the Mark I. We added a second main gun to compensate for the lack of AI, which should make up for those deficiencies." And then later, when it actually goes into production, "Well, it turns out that we really needed a full AI to handle that many guns, so we had to strip off 2 of the AP to make it all work..." :)
