Default Hammerhead Weapon Question

I couldn't find this anywhere else, so I have to ask it here. Since the Hammerhead Burst Cannons are seperate, can you use a Multi-Tracker to fire the Railgun and one Burst Cannon or can you fire both cannons and the Railgun?

The cannons count as defensive weapons so you would have to check the chart of firing vehicle weapons in the rulebook.

I don't own the rulebook. $50 is a ripoff IMO. I'm going to my friend's place tomorrow, so I could check his rulebook.

If I remember correctly, the Burst cannons count as 1 weapon. I'm almost positive it's in the Tau codex, but I don't have it sitting next to me to find it.

Gim
Burst Cannons count as two seperate weapons.

As for not buying the rulebook... good man!

Let me explain how the Defensive weapons work; any time you can fire a non-Defensive weapon, you can fire all your defensive weapons.

The maximum strength of a Defensive weapon is double that of a Tau Firewarrior. That should (hopefully) clarify. If not, you'll have to find someone who'll let you read their rulebook...

Multi tracker allows the HH to fire as a fast vehicle..so you can move over 6" and still shoot with one offensive and all defensive. This means you can shoot both without multi tracker, but you must move only up to 6", or you can equip multi tracker and move over 6" while still firing both. Always take multi tracker (don't use target lockers unless you are using sMs).

If my memory is right (usually is ;D) , the rules say that... oh wait, already stated by VV1LD. U get to fire both cannons and Railgun thanks to the cannons being under 6 strength. Ok, said what i wanted to say.

If both Burst cannons fire seperatley, can they fire at different targets without a target lock?
