Hello

Quick question about Targeting computers.

As an example, the Mech that has givin rise to this question is my Puma. It has 2 PPC's, a Flamer and a targetting computer.

My question is, can I only use the targetting computer with 1 attack per round, or can I use it when firing with both PPC's? (From what I can tell, you can't use flamers with Targetting computers)

If I can use it with only one weapon, is that per round, or do I declare at the start of the game which weapon it is attached too?

Thanks for your help on this.

Targeting computers benefit all compatible weapons on the 'Mech. If you had 12 medium lasers, 2 PPCs, an autocannon, and a targeting computer, all 15 weapons would get the targeting computer's benefits each turn. (Non-compatible weapons, of course, do not benefit.)

If you have a fairly modern set of construction rules (Tech Manual is most current) you'll note targeting computers' masses are determined by the tonnage of compatible weapons carried. Thus, they grow with the quantity of compatible weapons, representing targeting computer systems assigned to each compatible weapon.
