Advanced Fire Control System

TechManual (p. 217)
Advanced fire control systems are integral to all combat units and employed primarily by Support Vehicles designed for deployment in combat. They’re also common among armed IndustrialMechs (though armed IndustrialMechs are themselves a rarity). On par with standard combat targeting and tracking systems, advanced fire control enables support units to function with equal efficiency to combat units, and even allows compatibility with the advanced capabilities of targeting computers and C3 systems.
Though IndustrialMech models of this equipment are essentially weightless, swapping out the extant sensor suites with a military-grade version, the less-efficient Support Vehicle version of advanced fire control masses twice that of the basic version, coming to ten percent of the weight of all the vehicle’s mounted heavy and medium weapons.
Advanced Fire Control doubles the cockpit’s C-bill cost, but takes up no tonnage or critical space. When installed, the IndustrialMech loses its +1 to-hit modifier to all attacks, and may use targeting computers and C3-type equipment, essentially functioning in game play as if it had a standard BattleMech cockpit.
May be mounted on any available unit type with adherence to the following construction rules:
May mount up to one per unit
