The BMW Blitzkrieg comes equipped with a minigun (front) and an assault rifle (back) yet the stats say two heavy mounts only.

And? A gun in front and a gun in back is two weapons, so two mounts...

I've received some feedback that in the German version of Rigger 5, it's explicit that pre-installed mods count towards the total for a vehicle's limit for a particular category, and can be removed to reclaim that space. Is this a nerf on their end, or overlooked on ours? Further, if pre-installed mods don't count towards the standard vehicle capacity and they can be uninstalled, do they then provide bonus capacity above the maximum?

Will the vehicles from Stolen Souls have their stats updated to put them in line with similar vehicles in their class?  If federal agents are driving modified Sidewinders, the baseline model shouldn't be less robust than an Americar.

The Revolution has armor 6 on it's entry and armor 9 on the summary table on the back.

Page 160. Drone Rack Clarification:

Exact text:
Quote
Micro drone racks can hold up to ten micro drones,
mini drone racks can carry a drone of up to Mini size,
small drone racks can carry up to a Small drone, medium drone racks can carry up to a Medium drone, and
large drone racks can carry (you guessed it) up to a
Large drone

There are several ways to interpret this and the context isn't clear what is the intent. Do they mean:
Quote
Micro drone racks can hold up to ten micro drones,
mini drone racks can carry one drone of up to Mini size,
small drone racks can carry up to one Small drone, medium drone racks can carry up to one Medium drone, and
large drone racks can carry (you guessed it) up to one
Large drone

Or did they mean:
Quote
Micro drone racks can hold up to ten micro drones,
mini drone racks can carry ten drones of up to Mini size,
small drone racks can carry up to ten Small drones , medium drone racks can carry up to ten Medium drones , and
large drone racks can carry (you guessed it) up to ten
Large drones

Or even:
Quote
Micro drone racks can hold up to ten micro drones,
mini drone racks can carry ten drones of micro or Mini size,
small drone racks can carry up to ten micro, mini, or Small drone, medium drone racks can carry 10 of any sized drone that is Medium or smaller, and
large drone racks can carry (you guessed it) up to ten drone of any size (except huge)

It seems odd to have it allow 10 of the smallest size but then one one of each greater size.

Hughman,

While I can understand the thought that it is somewhat unclear, the phrasing "can carry a drone" is pretty clearly talking about a single drone. And even more so in the next one where it switches to "can carry up to a Small drone," which is very clearly talking about a singular number of drone. If it were multiple it would say "can carry up to Small drones"

And yes, this means that the micro drone rack can hold 10 drones, while all of the larger sized racks can only carry a single drone each. But think about the sizes there: ten micro drones probably take up about as much space as a single mini drone.

It does also mean that RAW, a large drone rack can only hold a single micro drone which is kind of odd.

True, but to avoid that would require some sort of size-equivalency-ratio system that allows a certain number of smaller drones to use up the space allotted for the larger drone, which is just not how the drone rack really works in the system. By default, drone racks can hold a single drone, boom done. It says that way before the part about Micro drone racks holding more than one. The big editing part is the fact that the Micro drone rack appears to be a complete after-thought (it was even left off the chart). Really, if you just left off that entire last paragraph, the whole description works fine. Then all they have to do is add a separate entry for the Micro-rack (since it works differently) and they are set.

Using 4e as reference, that's how it worked back then. They had drone racks of sizes Mini through Large (all of which could be standard or landing racks), and then they had the "multilaunch" rack which held up to 20 micro or 10 mini drones but had the added capability of being able to launch any number of them at a time (and also functioned as a landing rack).
