Range has been changed too, it's all in the shiny online version chapter 7.3, just check for yourself: http://www.brikwars.com/rules/2005/7.htm
And then you decide if you like the new or old rules about range best etc. Seems to be a range-favor for the rockets and launchers. Explosions ftw!

some important notes on weapons (and usually overlooked)
1>> you can have computers assist your aiming bought at 4cp for 1d6
2>>other minfigs can help you fire a weapon (think artillery crews)
3>>you can roll skill for several turns and store it to fire weapon (represents you carefully aiming calculating trajectories etc)
4>>if a weapon such as a Gatling or turret or same arm weapon, are of the same size, ie Class V, you only have to aim the one gun (barrel) as all others are considered to be pointing at the same target (this can also apply for minfigs all shooting one target, it can level the playing field versus heavy vehicle armys)

so in the case of the pre H rules were weapons have higher use ratings use more people, in the after H rules skill amounts are reduced but some times it helps o have more than one person firing the guns.

Raising the skill of the minifig is usually the best solution, but try to avoid going higher than 2D6, otherwise the game gets broken seriousley.

For all dice rolls, no matter the number of dice rolled, if they all come up one, it fails. If only one or anything besides all of the dice is one, that's your roll.

Skill is always one die.
1d4 = incompetent
1d6 = trained
1d8 = veteran
1d10 = heroic
1d12 = supernatural

No one has higher than 1d12 skill.

Multiple trained units can help fire a larger weapon; maximum one troop per inch of weapon size. Each extra troop adds one die size, to a max of 1d12. (Later this is going to be a special ability of Gunners, but they haven't been introduced yet.)

I do use some very stupidly high skills for minifigs, but then I play character heavy RPG,s where I am constantly forced into making more and more powerful characters.
