Considering it's designation's rules are pretty much "just like before DFTS planes", its actually one and the same to consider it in each.

Huh. I thought the rear disc was labeled as a Chaff Drone. I don't see any reference to that in the flavor or rules. Must be a dispersion shield?

Ask FW about it. Maybe it will be in the rulebook?

That's definitely what it was called by the designer

There is also text that says long barreled CIB's as well. Should definitely ask them.

You are like the tenth person I saw saying this, despite the text does not in any point says "Long barreled cyclic ion blaster", at all.

Oh definitely knew it said LB CIB's. I just wasn't sure where I seen it. Maybe if ten people tell you something it might be worth investigating in the future. Thanks panzer.

Description text also says "Heavy Burst cannon", not "Barracuda Heavy ...", BHBC is Heavy 6, HBC is Heavy 8: the Barracuda version loose two shots.
It says too that the wing "turrets" are Gun Drones with LBBC or CIB, so you may detach them as any other vehicle drones...
Nothing in rules though...

It almost sounds like they wanted to have a variant.
