It should be in your Codex...

However for reference, they may only take one (not including Hard-wired Systems).

No. The Broadsides have already used two of their three hard points. All Crisis suits have three hardpoints to use. The TL Railgun and SMS take up one hard point and you just need to fill in the thrid one. If you want to take more toys than you will need to hardwire them into the suit itself. Also as a side not the BS need to be a 'vre to HW stuff.

I agree that there is only on hard point left, but it hit me as I was reading this... You can have twinlinked plasma rifles, which takes up two hard points.... How does gameworks justify this?

im not sure if it is in the new dex, but in the old one, it says that due to the extra heavy armor, they can mount two weapons on the same hard-point.

Basicaly true. BS's armour removes the jetpack to pack in more weapons and armour, even though the model doesn't really represent that. So in fluff, 1 hardpiont can handle a single TL weapon.

It's only listed as a battlesuit support system (so take up a hard-point), so no. Only items in the wargear list can be hard-wired, and of course only the Broadside Shas'ui would have access to those.

theres also special gear like stim injectors, fail safe detonators that the vre can take, y i dont know but they dont take up and slots as they are wargear and not a weapon or support system.
