Default Question about twin linked

Quick question that i cant seem to figure out reading the codex or any posts.

On a crisis suit, with a multi tracker allow you to fire a twin liked say plasma and another weapon in the same turn? ??? Could all of these years i've been cheating myself ?

just bear in mind that multi-tracker would have to be hardwired...however for shas'el commanders this is a frequent tactic...often taking the fireknife combo, but twin linking one of the wepons and adding the multi-tracker hardwired....

You might want to try to make your crisis suits a HQ squad + bodyguards so they can all twinlink your weapon of choice, and have another system + be able to fire both at the same time.

It's my opinion crisis suits die too easily and cost too much for what they do to run a standard "fireknife" setup. (Man I really hate internet shorthand pimped around). If you're going to blow more points that you should be on suits to begin with, spring for the extra Wounds and accuracy on the HQ and the 10 points each for the bodyguards and watch your productivity shoot up.

Scratch the bodyguards, sry, much better to just use a squad of crisis. That extra close combat ability won't help at all if you are playing crisis suits correctly.

Paying the points isn't about the extra combat ability, it's about the ability to twin link a weapon and also add another weapon + a multi tracker. Plus it saves valuable elite spaces for the entirely better stealth suits.

this is True but it also takes away the Commanders IC status, unless its 2000pts its not a trade worth making IMO.
