General Details
Name:  Variable Range Targeting
Type:     Positive
Cost:  Varies (see Description)
Available To:  BattleMechs
Reference:  BattleMech Manual (p. 86)

Description:
A íMech with this quirk has an advanced targeting system that allows it to launch more accurate attacks at either long or short range, at the expense of reduced accuracy at other ranges. During a turnís End Phase, the controlling player must designate whether this improved targeting feature will be active at long or short range the next turn. All weapon attacks at the designated range receive a Ė1 Target Number modifier, but all weapon attacks at the other range receive a +1 Target Number modifier (medium range remains unmodified).

The cost is 1 point per 5 points (or fraction thereof) maximum damage that all the weapons mounted on the íMech can inflict (excluding physical attack weapons). This quirk cannot be combined with Improved Targeting.
