Default Crisis weapons system question

ill make this quick: could you take take a twin-linked weapon system and another weapon with a muilti-tracker and fire all the weapons in the same shooting phase?

example: crisis suit; twin-linked plasma rifle and a missle pod with muilti-tracker

so does the twin-linked weapon count as one choice so that i can take another and a muilti-tracker? much appreciated

no you can't do that but you can do it to a shas'vre and use a hard wired multi tracker

(The Multitracker would have to be hardwired)

Yes, you can do that, as the twin-linked system fires as one weapon, even though it physically takes the space of two weapons. You can then have another weapon, meaning that you physically have three weapons, but they count as two, as two of them are twin-linked.

However that means you don't have anymore space for a multitracker, meaning it would have to be hardwired.

Examples:
- Twin Linked Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle & Hardwired Multitracker (3 weapon systems which count as two when shooting, 1 hard-wired system)
- Twin Linked Missile Pod, Flamer (3 weapon systems which count as two when shooting)
- Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multitracker (2 weapon systems, 1 support system)

I think that all crisis suits should be able to take wargear, they are all shas'ui with years of combat experience and would all be able to handle tau wargear tech as well as each other. Fluff-wise it makes little sense.

The codex or rulebook does make this pretty clear, it does specifically point out this clear and even refers to this situation.

Also the above got it right.
