(whoops, posted this as a reply in the thread that inspired it.... but people might not look there...)
can someone site me a page number that defines for vehicles:
1. where line of sight of a weapon is dran from
2. where the weapon's range is measured from
when trying to fire a predator's sponson heavy bolter, do i look from the sponson for line of sight (implying the tank can block it)
then measure from the mounting bolt of the gun (which would be the center of the gun) for distance
(basically treating the sponson like a mini with a HW standing at the side of the tank)
do i measure LOS and distance from the edge of the tank
(implying that mounting a 6" barrel on my Heavy bolter scores me another 2-3" of firing distance)
i seem to recall it's the former... but don't have my book handy...

Page 64 of the BGB, the entire heading of Vehicle Line of Sight. The important sentences are the second and fourth sentences of that paragraph.Originally Posted by Holy_Smigs
So yes, tanks can block LoS of their own weapons. Take the Immolator for example - troops firing from the hatch can't draw LoS through the Inferno Cannon.Anacron posted in the other thread the answer to this one - Page six of the BGB. You draw range from the closest part of the hull of the vehicle.Originally Posted by Holy_Smigs
