Think about guys - Carapace multi lasers are for titan defense there short range and no sv mod implies they are defense against infantry. Surely you are not suggesting that titans are only charged by infantry from the rear. In the orignal rules titans could mount more than two weapons on the carapace. GW made the titan (plastic) with 4 slots for mounting weapons/banners/control towers and the like.

If the positioning bothers you... consider the Warp and Harpoon Missile bits. These were clearly made to mount under not on the carapace. Now some whiners out there say that its wrong (blah blah blah) since new rules say missiles are carapace (on) mount only. I don't think so.

Wake up.
