  • Modern Machine Guns and Weapons Gimbals (Science Fiction Companion and Core)

    The SFC wasn't released for this edition and that brings up some weird rules interactions. One of these interactions is how weapon gimbals work with modern machine guns.

    1. Does a man portable (has a strength requirement) machine gun count as mounted when used with a weapon gimbal?
    2. Does a heavier machine gun without a strength requirement count as mounted when used with a weapon gimbal?

    Example: A space marine is stranded on a world with a modern tech level and thus no futuristic ammo. Can he attach the local equivalent of a M2 browning to his weapon gimbal and use that machine gun with no snapfire, recoil, or minimum strength penalty? What if he attached a SAW to his gimbal?

    Weapons gimbals have never counted as mounted. I don't see that changing in SWADE.
