I'd have to say I disagree with this interpretation. the Flux Arc's are defensive in that tthey are less than S7, agreed.sorry mate, your wrong. You cannot always shoot the Flux Arc. The Monolith still follows the same shooting rules for other vehicles, meaning, if you shoot the particle whip, you cannot shoot the flux arc. The particle whip is an Ordinance weapon, and the main rulebook states that if you move 6" with a skimmer, you may fire 1 ordinance weapon OR 1 main weapon and all defensive weapons. Same goes for not moving at all. Therefore by firing the particle whip, you deny yourself usage of the flux arc.
I enfasize the will part above to show that you have no choice in the matter. You cant choose to not fire the flux arc projectors. They fire automatically at every unit within 12" whether you want them to or not.bgb said:The Flux Arc projectors will fire D6 shots at every enemy unit with a model within 12" of the Monolith. Each 'weapon destroyed' result inflicted on the Monolith reduces the number of shots at each target by -1.
