DOnt remember the exact number but quite a load. About half the total votes
at least.

I would highly recommend that something is done to avoid making lascannon
etc. too powerfull against infantrty.

Perhaps reduce their accuracy and then introduce a +1 modifier to hit tanks.
Or just keep em and make infantry targets -1 to hit
