Default SMS question

i know this sounds n00bish but with a SMS on a hammer head or BS, how many shots do you get because in the Codex it says "A smart missile system" but in some battle reports it says that they have shot 8 shots.

Thanks in advance.

You get 4 shots, according to the codex. That person must have interpret the codex in an awfully convenient way.

There is only one SMS on the tank, so you would take both missle pods off.

SMS is one weapon (it's just split into two pods). Burst Cannons on a HH counts as two separate weapons. So when you have weapon destroyed, SMS hammerhead only has two weaons, whilst a BC hammerhead has three.

Regarding Battle Reports - A lot of GW staff don't know their own rules.
