This is sorta curious. I was always under the impression that tanks
mount some pretty high-calibre machine guns and have done since WWII.
Ok, they might be limited in arc of fire, but given that they are
mounted on a very stable platform, and not limited by the strength of
the infantryman carrying / using it, WHY are tank bolters / hvy bolters
in Epic worse than infantry ones????
