Default Chimera firepoints Question

A chimera's firepoints are modeled with three on each side of the hull. Based off the model, troops inside could only fire three lasgun shots at a target, unless the target was surrounding them, and only if the target was within their small fire arcs.

So my question is: how many lasguns can passengers fire, and in what directions?

I am very unclear about this too....it would seem to me that each set of three has a 180 degree fire arc. By that logic yes, only 3 could fire unless they were surrounded. Sure, the model would have a hard time firing 180 degrees, but any other more limited arc would introduce too much subjective judgement.

You may fire all six remote-lasguns at any unit of your choice... don't ask how, but you can.

Yep... Wargamer is right.

I suppose you could think of it as the other three get ignored in order to fire the ones on one side twice or somthiog:P

It was in a White Dwarf that confirmed it. Can't remember which one.
