Default FW Tetra Question...

Don't ask me how, but I managed to lose 3 wings from my 3 Piranhas. So I decided to convert two of them into "counts-as" Tetras.

Anyway, I don't want to get in trouble by listing stats, but I can't ask my question without revealing some info. Tetras are equipped with a twin-linked Pulse Rifle. Being a skimmer, I don't know how to go about firing it. Can I only shoot 12" if I move?

Vehicles count as being stationary for the purposes of firing weapons (except barrage and ordinance, which scatter more). I hope that helps.

The only issue is how many weapons you can fire when moving at certain speeds, but I'm guessing you know that.

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

Yes, I know weapon-firing limitations at speed, but I had brought this question up to one of the red-shirts at my local store, and he couldn't give me a straight answer.

So, like Battlesuits, I basically get the same stable firing platform rule that they get? I can move and fire 1 shot at maximum range, or two shots at <12"?

Yes, they're like battlesuits. Can always fire the long range single shot.

Yes except, as I already said, its actually just standard vehicle rules that the weapons count as remaining stationary when the vehicle moves. Why would you think a tetra would be any different? (this is a geniune question, not be being an ass)
