I just wanted to clarify that the “Heavy Rocket Launcher” in V2 fires 4” template.
Rule- “Fires HE (3D6) rockets rather than the usual HE (2D6) rockets. However, to represent the fact that it is so slow to reload, when it fires it immediately suffers D3 pin markers. It must then be given a successful Rally order to reload it before it can be ordered to Fire again.”

Correct, to convert first edition xDx HE notations to template sizes, you use the “Hits vs targets in buildings” column of the second edition HE chart. See p70, Weapons, Weapon Special Rules, HE (High Explosive), para immediately following the HE chart for confirmation.1+December 14, 2019 at 11:29 am #172659SimonParticipant
Thought as much, Thank you0December 16, 2019 at 10:41 pm #172680Mark PrichardParticipant
I have another question. When it says “it must then be given a successful Rally order to reload it before it can be ordered to Fire again.” Does this mean you have to use an order dice to rally, then wait unit the next turn to place it on fire, or does it mean you if you successfully rally you may also fire on the same turn?

Rallying uses the order for that turn – you can’t fire on a rally order. Once you have successfully given a rally order, it can be ordered to fire in a future turn.0December 17, 2019 at 5:39 pm #172755Mark PrichardParticipant
That is what I thought. Thank you.0
