I'm a bit concerned that the system for a non-dedicated unit is 
better than the dedicated whole vehicle system of ZADs which has a 
more limited range.

It does fit PSB for some systems and stories (hammers slammers), 
however, it seems that a class 5 HEL with a ZADFC should have some 
problems. One being ability to traverse and train quickly for a very 
fast moving target. Further, in order to elevate, you need a larger 
profile or some other mechanisms that are fancy for the standard 
ground combat systems not normally present (why doesn't a tank with a 
Class 5 HEL get to normally engage a flyer?).

There needs to be a size increase or a limit on the range more in 
keeping with problems involved in the less than dedicated nature 
here. Additional rules for limited arcs of engagement or single 
target effectiveness for the non-dedicated ZADFC equipped heavy 
weapons might mitigate the higher capability of the general system 
over a dedicated ZAD vehicle.
