Default Broadside Questions?

Okay so im trying to mix up how i configure my Broadsides. Normally i just give them a Leader with some toys and some shield gens and call it a day, but i wanna see if i can break away from that.

1. I know broadsides have to take one Support system. But if you have a sqaud can each member take a different one like all the other suits. I ask because the wording sounds like you have to take the same one unlike the others.

2. Can you just only upgrade one of the broadsides with plasma?


Both these probably have easy answers and im just probably over thinking it, I just dont want to have to kickmyself later because i was playing them the wrong way (cheating or inefficently).

As far as I know it has to be the same support system, team leaders can take wargear though. And they can all take plasma rifles.

1) yes they can each take a different system. I like to give the leader shield drones and the other to target locks in case I want to engage a different unit. target arrays are a little over kill but one for those really important shots can be useful.

2) yes, though you will find the plasma vs smart missiles is a highly debated topic, the suits can each be different within the scope of options. I dont have my book with me but I believe the examples in the colored portion even show it that way. The only time support systems need to be the same is when you use the A.S.S. system.

Ah, right, that's just for the Advanced Stabilization System, if one model takes it they all have to. There's nothing in the book that says they all have to have the same support systems though.
