I apologize in advance if this is a perennial discussion topic or hotbutton issue, but what's up with the ranges for the big guns? The range for the artillery pieces, in particular the mortars and the basilisk, would fail to impress the artillery officers of WW I, let alone modern gun crews.
Yes, I know it's the grim dark future and people have forgotten how to add up to 10 on their fingers, but honestly….
I realize part of it is probably a balance issue from the tabletop game, but even there you could call in arty from 'off screen' right? How are we supposed to have the 'sneak behind enemy lines to act as forward observers' mission if you have to carry the guns in your back pocket to begin with?
Not that forward observers should really be necessary if you have the orbitals, and if you don't have the orbitals you're beyond screwed but hey.
