Default Must all the Broadsides in a unit select the same support upgrade?

Like the subject says - must I select the same upgrade for all the models in a Broadside unit? If one takes a shield generator - do they all have to take that support upgrade?

And if not... How do I determine which model is hit when the unit takes fire - does the enemy indicate which model he's targeting? Or do I randomize the hits? I don't have the book at hand right now - but I'll double check on this question if it's made clear in the rules - just point me towards the page number....

Thanks.

The unit does not all have to take the same support system EXCEPT when they are taking the advanced stabalization system, then they all must have it.

Also when getting hit you chose who takes wounds assuming all are within the damage zone, if two are hidden behind a building and the third is out in the open the third gets hit. This allows you to give one a shield gennerator and let him take all the ap 1 and 2 shots and hope he saves them. Also you MUST take cassualties where possible so if you take 3 wounds on a 3 man team you cant take one wound off each but one must die and one take a wound.

Its all in the rulebook, I dont have it with me or I would look up the pages for you.

Hm.....it depends on the equipment actually. Some must be chosen for the whole team while some don't.

Example

1)advanced stabilizing syatem: must be taken by the entire team.

2)multitraker: you MAY equip them with the same equipment

Also, giving all of them target locks would waste one TL...only ASS forces you to give it to everyone.

Just a quick question which I was gonna post but seem relevent here. If you have a shield drone and fail the invulnerable save...... does the drone get taken off as a casualty or does the broadside?

Cheers
