General Details
Name:  Anti-Aircraft Targeting
Type:     Positive
Cost:  Varies (see Description)
Available To:  BattleMechs, IndustrialMechs
Reference:  BattleMech Manual (p. 82)

Some ’Mechs, like the Rifleman, have an advanced targeting system that can accurately target airborne units. This includes ’Mechs performing a combat drop, but not jumping ’Mechs. All attacks against such units while airborne (not grounded) receive a –2 Target Number modifier.

The cost is 1 point per 7 points (or fraction thereof) of maximum damage that all the weapons mounted on the ’Mech can inflict (excluding physical attack weapons). This bonus is only available when the ’Mech itself is on the ground.
