Showing results for tags 'Target Lock'.
The description of TAG on pages 124-125 has some fluff, but no real information on what it does in-game. I've spent some time reading up what I can find elsewhere in the rulebook, but I want to make sure I'm understanding the differences between TAG and Target Lock correctly. Please let me know if any of the following is incorrect: 1) Acquiring Target Lock uses a target lock action, while acquiring TAG uses a special action. Functionally this seems quite similar as they both use up one of your actions and are non-repeatable. (not identical, but similar in most circumstances) 2) Both Target Lock and TAG allow guided missiles to fire. (same) 3) TAG requires line of sight, however Target Lock does not. (different) 4) Both Target Lock and TAG can be affected by Counter-Measures. (same) 5) ECM states that it stops Target Lock, but does not mention TAG. (different) 6A) In the Strike Point Roll Table (page 56 and cheat sheet), an Advanced Targeting Computer gives a bonus when used with Target Lock or TAG. (same) 6B) However, in the description for Advanced Targeting Computer (page 119) it only mentions Target Lock as giving a bonus to primary combat rolls. This makes me wonder if TAG gives a bonus for direct-fire target-point rolls, or only indirect strike-point rolls. (different?) Anything else that I'm missing? Thanks!
