It should work very well. I like the A.S.S. , for my style of play.

Yeah, most people forego accuracy (TA) for mobility (ASS).

I dont think TA on broadsides are worth the points. They hit on fours, reroll misses. Never have i had more than one broadside miss a turn, and rarely that. Put the points into markerlights, which can benifit the entire army.

I never will use A.S.S. for the sheer fact, I probably wont move into LOS and IF I do, the tank will move next turn. ALWAYS put your broadsides in a open spot so you can hit anything.
I would rather hit 88 percent of the time than be able to possibly move into LOS.

i dont really see why people like to have the A.S.S. on broadsides, you get to move through difficult terrain and fire a railgun whoop dee doo (understatement i know) while it is good the added BS will alow you to keep more shots on the opponent and that comes in handy against land raiders. i am in no way saying that the A.S.S. is useless, quite on the contrary, just that i would rather have an added BS.

It seems like a waste to me unless you don't take any markerlights. To be honest, I would rather have the Multi-tracker than either the A.S.S. or the Targeting Array.
