Default Number of shots from a warfish?

Hey,

I have a quick question. If I upgrade my devilfish to a warfish and pay the +20pts for the SMS, that allows me to put a SMS in the place where the gun drones go, so thats 2 SMS. If my fish doesnt move, I get to shoot each SMS for a total of 8 shots, or is it a total of 4 per turn?
Then if I move 6", do I get to shoot 4 shots, or just 2?

Hows this work?

Thx!
Randy

the SMS is one system... both the pods are counted as ONE weapon. so only 4 shots between the pair... meaning the total shots from a stationary warfish is 7(3 for burst cannon + 4 for SMS) hope that helps

Merqu pretty much sums it up well.

Remain stationary, you get 7 shots;
move up to 6" you get 3(Burst) or 4(SMS) shots.
move more then 6" you get 0 shots...except if you get a multitracker, in which case you have 3 or 4 shots depending on weapon used.

ah forgot to mention that thanks bone guard.

the only way to get more than 3/4 shots is to keep the drones. this is because they may always fire along with any other weapon that may normally be fired. thus keeping it standard allows 5 shots. if you give multi tracker then you can fire all 5 shots whilst moving full 12 inches.

because of defensive weapons being downgraded we will most probably be seeing less warfish in use due to 20 points for over all less shots when on the move. which your going to want to be doing considering the new cc with vehicles rule.

You only get the 7 shots when moving if you have a multitracker remember :P

with a multitracker you get 7 when moving up to 6" then up to 12" you can fire either but not both.

Really need a table for this one. I wrote one up somewhere, but it's easier to rebuild it from scratch. Number of shots based on type and speed of devilfish:

[table]
[tr]
[td][/td] [td]static[/td] [td]combat[/td] [td]cruise[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]stock, drones[/td] [td]5[/td] [td]5[/td] [td]0[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]stock, SMS[/td] [td]7[/td] [td]4[/td] [td]0[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]multi-tracker, drones[/td] [td]5[/td] [td]5[/td] [td]5[/td]
[/tr]
[tr]
[td]multi-tracker, SMS[/td] [td]7[/td] [td]7[/td] [td]4[/td]
[/tr]
[/table]

That's "in addition to any weapons that may normally fire"
With the new rules for passengers though (which Drones technically are) they can't fire if the vehicle moved faster than combat speed, so that might actually knock off the extra shots that m-track/drones gets at cruising speed. (but that's just an evil little bit of RAW)

hmm i always read it as they may always fire as well as any other weapons normally aloud to fire. it specifically states that they are only treated as passengers for any form if disembarking.
