Firing arc for Seeker Missiles on Sunshark/Razorshark

Post#1 » Mar 08 2017 04:58

I'm not sure what the exact fire arc for seeker missiles on our fliers is. Does it change when using a markerlight to fire the missile?

Often times our fliers shoot straight backwards with their turrets but the seeker missiles seem to be hull mounted. Does that mean they only fire forward?

I have always thought that seeker missiles launched forward and then looped back or to the side to wherever the marker light was.

Would agree. If called by a marker light its exactly like MNGamer wrote.
But if its fired from the Flyer itself, i would say its a forward facing missile with its usual arc for forward facing weapons.

If you expend a markerlight token to grant Seeker to the missile, the missile must be fired at the same target as the vehicle's other weapons. One thing to note is that it does not reduce the number of weapons a vehicle can fire at its full Ballistic Skill.

Can you dummy fire the missile? I think some common sense can be applied here. The missiles are located in the forward facing position on the craft. Consider it to be forward facing when resolving the firing arc.
