I'm confused by what SA: TAG does in CAV.
In the SO rules on page 124-125 it is never clear what a TAG does - at least not to me. In the errata, it says that, "...the attacker may "paint" and fire guided missiles at a designated target during the same combat action."
In the SO rules page 113 it says that Guided Missile require either a Target Lock or a TAG in order to fire.
In the SO rules page 115 it says that rockets with the'semi-guided' upgrade (page 136) can take advantage of TAG.
Here are my questions:
Does the TAG confer a Target Lock? Does the TAG allow the use of a targeting computer bonus against the painted target? Can the TAG be used by other units in the friendly force? If it cannot and it can only benefit Guided Missiles and semi-guided Rockets then why does the Spartan who has no GMs and no Rockets have a TAG?
I looked through all of the data sheets and I found 17 models with the SA:TAG. Of those 17 only 5 had GMs and none had semi-guided Rockets.
I must be missing something. Why would all of those units have TAG if they can't make use of it?
Thanks for your time and understanding.
I'm trying parse this paragraph from the rules packet. I think I understand it but as a noob I could use some confirmation.
Aircraft, infantry, and vehicle models are not eligible for use during this tournament. We're only allowed to bring CAVs. Bonus points [not allowed] Normally, a force group gets 20% of its threat value pool in points to spend on specializations from Battlefield: upgrades, support assets, support strikes. We don't get any of these points. specialization assets and packages [not allowed] Normally, a force gets 10% of its threat value pool to spend on additional force group specializations, We don't get any of these points.
What I think this boils down to is that we're to play CAVs only, using the stats printed on the datasheets with no modifications. We have exactly 5000 points to spend - no bonuses.
Is this right...?
Thanks for your help!
I searched the forum and tried to find an answer to my question(s) before posting but could not. I'm not sure what the accepted policy is on quoting the rules in the forums so if I've broken a rule please forgive me.
In the CAV:SO book page 57 bullet point 3 under Field Notes says that a Target Lock is required before a Guided Missile is fired or it will auto-miss - [paraphrased]
The CAV: Errata says to replace the third paragraph (by which I think they mean bullet point) with a paragraph that includes this line:
"The target-lock action can be used by a model to acquire an active “lock” on a target as part of a ranged assault that includes guided missiles (see Guided Missile, p. 112). ..."
Does making a ranged assault with a Guided Missile require 2 actions (1 for the Target Lock and 1 for the Ranged Assault)?
Does making a ranged assault with a Guided Missile require 1 action that includes the Target Lock and the Ranged Assault together?
Something else I've missed.
