I'm confused about the SMS on the Hammerhead. Do i get 4 attacks or 8 per round of shooting. It seems like I would get 8 because there are two separate missile pods on the model, like the burst cannon option (they fire separately and are not twin linked). So with the BC I get 6 attacks per round right? And 8 for the SMS? Or 4? Maybe its that 2 shots come from each missile pod?
Yes I've started a Tau army (mech)
No I have not played them yet
Yes I have both the codex and the BGB
and yes this is my first post
Thanks for your help in advance
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup
Codex Tau states that a Hammerhead Gunship can be equiped with A smart missile system.
A pair refers to the burst cannon which would be 6 shots, the SMS is just 4.
Go by whats in the codex, I have had people tell me that the Broadside SMS is a heavy 6 twin-linked weapon..because thats how many missiles its got!!!

fire 2*4 shots when you can fire all defensive weapons. so with target lock each sms can be at a separate unit. read closely, the text in the codex says 'pair'.
No, the Smart missle system is one system, in total, it does say that in the codex. You get 4 shots with it. If you got 8 shots, it's be better than the burst cannons in every possible way, wouldn't it?
The burst cannons are two, seperate cannons, that can be fired independently from each other if a target lock is purchased. 6 shots total.
Four Shots is right
What can I say? Its an Ork eat Ork world.
