All the smart missile systems are not twin-linked. It says "Twin-linked rail gun and Smart Missile System" not "Twin-linked rail gun and Twin-linked Smart Missile System." The Hammerhead does not have a twin-linked SMS either. It's just Heavy4 at your BS as normal.

The MAJOR advantage of SMS is no line of sight required. That will dominate 5+ armor saves or worse. It would be cool if it was twin-linked, but we really cant complain with the "no LOS" rule.

Yeah, I guess the No LOS does get rid of the TL...but imagine if it was? 4 Shots that are Str. 5 TL? ^-^

I wish the missles either had lower AP. Be nice if they went through 3+ armor save. ;D

Then it would not be balanced, it would be overkill! ^-^

Oh please. It doesn't seem any worse than a Eldar Starcannon or Pulse laser. :P

No, Overkill!
1) No LOS
2) Str. 5
3) Heavy 4
That's more than enough! ^-^
