To rectify this the heavy tank skill now includes a defensive fire before
close combat begins

Halve versus infantry full versus armor. Will correct.

Will do, change to independent

As I said before I made suppressing armor with regular weapons difficult. Of
course if one vehicle were destroyed then marines could suppress the

Has been corrected.

I omitted that only the maintis artillery has 4 BP and the venom 2, this has
been added.

hehe, you skipped something, the rule states you may move up to your ADVANCE
move, which never is more than 50cm.

Will make it applied just to infantry, No wargear may be used by titans this
is added to the core rules.

This is more to avoid abuse than set in stone. If player agree they can
forgoe this, besides if this is the only thing they have to do with the
other player present it isn't that bad. But I admit it is a limitiation.

Crap, yes, which means I have to change the little cheat sheet to reflect
this, will do.

Each weapon on a titan is almost like a different unit, so yes each causes
suppression. Will add.

I really really happy with this input and getting rid of typos and
unclearness, thanks a bunch!!!
