|FIRE-LINKED WEAPON||DAMAGE||EMPLACEMENT POINTS||AVAILABILITY||COST|
Weapon Systems of any type that deal damage can be Fire-Linked to increase their output, using up more space than a Cannon, Double/Quad but costing less. (Fire-Linked Turbolasers are often described as "Batteries," but this is not the same thing as a Weapon Battery in game terms). With every attack, Fire-Linked Missiles and Torpedoes consume a number of shots of ammunition equal to the number of Fire-Linked Weapons. A Fire-Linked Weapon has the given availability or the availability of it's Base Weapon, whichever is more restrictive.
Optional Fire-Link Edit
Some Fire-Linked Weapons, such as Missiles and Torpedoes, are designed to have their Fire-Link deactivated to conserve ammunition. The Fire-Link can be turned on or off as a Swift Action, and the extra damage and ammunition consumption applies only while the Fire-Link is activated.
