Ah... Yes. That's right. Looks like I forgot to write in the words!

Yes. Easier to use. (Now I just have to find my D16... :-)

I'm not sure either. This system occured to me when I was analysing
failures of the previous system and realised that the DIFFERENCE between
dice could closely match the INEFFECTIVENESS of weapons. Then it was
a matter of arranging the dice so it all fits and adding in dice for the
level of armour and size of weapon. I like it as no vehicle is truly
from even the lightest weapon and it should be quicker to use. It looks
Active armour would be easy to add to this system.
I should be able to test this system on the weekend. I'll give my
opinion on Monday evening.
Who's feeling really overworked lately!
