Right, I'm starting to play BFG and have myself a FW Tau fleet on order. After downloading the rulebook and having a look through it I've got a few questions.
Firstly, I can't find the rule for fighters suppressing turrets. I've seen it mentioned, and I can find the rule about bombers suffering a -1 per turret, but not the suppression bit.
Secondly regarding damage. I presume when in the critical tables when it says "Port (or whatever side) armament damage" that's everything on the portside whether it be gun batteries, lances, torpedo launchers or launch bays?
Regarding the tracking systems that the Tau have. Does the vessel/defense fitted with them also benefit from them?
And lastly regarding the ordnance limit. I can understand how you can't have more fighters on the board than you have launch facilities. However I was wondering if you can do this example.
Launch all available fighters on turn 1, then next turn reload. Then in the same turn as reloading, if I choose to remove some of those fighter tokens, can I then relaunch them in that same ordnance phase? I kinda think that it doesn't make sense but just not sure.
