Just got through a mega-apocalypse battle with 19k per side
One question that came up was the number of weapons that a baneblade can fire.
Viewpoint 1 - it's by type so 5 - the main gun , the auto cannon,the demolisher, the twin linked bolters ( counting all sponsons & hull mounted togeter for 1 target) and the sponson mounted lascanons together for another 1 target.
View 2 was each individual gun mounting can target a different unit/target if desired so main gun , auto cannon, demolisher and all sponsons all aiming at separate targets in their respective fire arcs. so 8 or 12 depending upon whether it has 2 or 4 sponsons
Page 92 of the Apoc rules uses the wording "Each Weapon"
Rogo Me Quomodo!
Its a superheavy. Each individual weapon may fire on its own individual target within range and fire arc, although you only get the co-ax benefit if you hit a target with the co-ax weapon and then the main gun.
Fluffwise, trump it up to the fact they've got something close to two to three dozen well trained operators in there manning their relative segments.
Its stuff like this that makes the Malcador Defender obscenely delicious.
