ARRRGH, math-hammer!

Yeh, why not try 30 BS4 Veterans in six units of five, each with three plasma guns and a plasma pistol? That's 'only' 48 plasma shots... and then there's the fifteen grenadiers bringing another nine plasma weapons (18 more plasma shots) and a Command Squad bringin five plasma weapons...

So what's that, 76 plasma shots? Gee whiz and golly gosh, maybe now you don't mind the rapid fire.

Besides, 100 lasrifles have the potential to kill 100 Marines or 0 Marines. It doesn't matter. Math-hammer is bunkum.
