I don't think there's any disagreement to agree about here, for me it was less about trying to figure out the right answer to the question than about trying to figure out what the question was in the first place. I'm still not sure what kind of magic effect a command vehicle was supposed to have that we needed to make rules to account for it, but it seems like we probably covered whatever it was.

The minifig gets a -6 penalty to his next roll. Then roll for success. If you succeed, your minifigs in the area get a +1 bonus. If you fail, your minifigs in the area get a -1 penalty.
Do you remember when we were talking about a Drill Sergeant unit? He was like an officer with a power drill and the ability to Scapegoat a squad member. Once a turn, he could blame any failure on one of his squad members, sacrifice him (by drilling a hole in his head), and then the rest of the squad would get a motivation bonus. (Later this got turned into Masters and Thralls in chapter 10, but I always liked this image of leadership.)

Not sure what you mean. Can you show an example?

120. Yes, so you'll often need several Gunners on a vehicle with a lot of weapons. The nice thing about having a bunch of gunners is that you can switch them on the fly between all firing separate weapons at separate targets to working together in Gunnery Support groups for larger main weapons.
