Default Interesting RAW loophole.

In the upgrades for veterans it state that you can exchange two guardsmen for a heavy weapons platform, fair enough, how ever, it says exactly that, you may exchange two, not "any two" or "up to two" just two. so this means that you can make your team, then exchange two more, then two more, how does a team of 5 heavy weapons at BS4 sound?

I know full well that this isn't what is intended by the rule, but RAW, that what you can do.

Not a loophole, just you misunderstanding the rules. Since it does not provide an upper limit or say you can do it repeatedly, you may only do it once. The once-only limit is automatically implied by the rules being permissive - i.e, the rules must permit you to do something, or you cannot do it. Since they do not say you can do it more than once, you may only do it once.

Even if you could, you only have 9 guardsmen. 1 is a sergeant.
