Subject: RE: [DS] Mounted infantry are vehicle weapons?

My initial interpretation of the rules was yes, but common sense
prevailed & only the heavy weapons (HEL, RFAC, DFFG etc) & extra APSWs
count as 'weapons' for construction limitations.
Personally, I only count the heavy weapon mounts & use APSWs (SAW, MLP,
AGL etc) for SG to match weapons to my models. (As long as it doesn't
mount 15 APSWs, opponents usually don't mind).

Very Sick Assault Vehicle
Size: 3, GEV, 3 APSW + free APSW & APFC, 3 x assault infantry stands.
Close assault infantry or other tank units & watch them die due to
inability to return enough fire.
(This combo draws 4 x 2 chits & 3 x 3 chits for about 140-180 points)

Hello all,

I am delurking again to ask if vehicles carrying infantry teams must
them towards their weapons limit.  I thought not and I don't remember
seeing anything about it in the Dirtside rules.  But when I plugged a
vehicle design for a size 3 vehicle with 2 weapon systems that carried 2
units of infantry into the vehicle generation page at it said: 'ERROR:  ** You
not have more weapon systems (counting mounted infanty) than your
size class! **'.  

I have looked at a few DS FAQs on the net but have seen no mention of
 Have overlooked something in the rules or missed an important bit of
errata somewhere?
