This isn't clear. And, in fact, about a year ago I got a big discussion
this. I have a scenario where there are 4 plasma guns per squad of Power
Armour. I let them fire any number of support weapons with one action.

This got us into a discussion on the list where some people said, "Well,
put more than one support weapon in a squad." This was countered with,
not even HISTORICALLY accurate." 

The feeling was that If you could fire 2 support weapons along with
you could fire them without rifles. However, the support weapons are
independently. In my scenario, the plasma guns (used to take out
vehicles and
infantry) could each fire with one action, but they all fired
Each rolled a Quality die and a Firepower die, that's all. 

Again, some vagueness. I have playtested this and it works, though. It
because the support weapons in question are plasma guns, and because the
scenario makes use of this. It could be easily overpowering if players
allowed to create squads without limitations. But SG2 is a scenario
game, and I don't think that a properly balanced scenario should be
from doing this.
