I've read through the rules for both arcs of fire and barrage weapons and I have a few questions.

Do tanks with barrage weapons have an arc of fire?

If they do, can they fire outside of it and just consider the target out of line of site even if it is in plain view?

It seems as though the rules lean toward it working out this way but it doesn't really seem right. Any help would be appreciated.

lets just assume its immobalized...

i dearsay that "most" artillery would have a 45° firing arc because its weapons look very hull mounted :3

Page 58 of the BRB: "Just like infantry, vehicles need to be able to draw line of sight to their targets in order to shoot at them."

So if you can't see the target from the gun, you can't shoot.
If you shoot one direction, the shot isn't going to redirect itself mid flight.

The target must be in the arc of fire first, the LOS doesn't enter into it since it may be fired indirectly.
