Hello all,

I am reviewing FanPro AT2 Revised which shows that both Inner Sphere and Clan can use Long Tom, Sniper, and Thumper artillery as standard weapons that can be incorporated as part of the construction process. My softcover of AT2 Revised does not appear to have the Battle Values for the three artillery pieces and the associated ammunition, which has led to making my head spin and trying to determine which Battle Values to use with AT2 Revised.

I have checked in the following sources:
A. Sources
1. FanPro BMR Revised p. 157 shows the following for both the Inner Sphere and Clan:
Long Tom BV 171; Ammo BV 11
Sniper BV 86; Ammo BV 5
Thumper BV 40; Ammo BV 3

2. FanPro Maximum Tech Revised p. 89 Inner Sphere
Long Tom BV 248; Ammo BV 48
Sniper BV 115; Ammo BV 16
Thumper BV 58; Ammo BV 7

3. CGL Tactical Operations pp. 383 & 385
Inner Sphere p. 383
Long Tom BV 368; Ammo BV 46
Sniper BV 85; Ammo BV 11
Thumper BV 43; Ammo BV 5

Clan p. 385
Long Tom BV 560; Ammo BV 46
Sniper BV 96; Ammo BV 11
Thumper BV 48; Ammo BV 5

4. BattleTechWiki
http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Long_Tom_Artillery_Piece
BV (1.0) ?, BV (2.0) 386; 46 (Ammo)

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Sniper_Artillery_Piece
BV (1.0) ?, BV (2.0) 85

http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Thumper_Artillery_Piece
BV (1.0) ?, BV (2.0) 43

B. Questions
1. Which source should I use to calculate AT2 Revised Battle Value?
2. Which source would be considered BV (1.0)
3. Should the BattleTechWiki BV (2.0) data for the Sniper and Thumper match the entries found in CGL Tactical Operations?

Thank you for the reply and for confirming my hope that the BattleTechWikki should be based on CGL Tactical Operations.
