He is allowed to target the Gun with HEAT from the BAZ. See C8.31 "HEAT may
only be fired at a...Gun.."
Also C11.51 "HEAT destroys a Gun using the same mechanics as an HE Hit,
except that it uses HE equivalency (C8.31)
As a result, the gun cre4w will also possibly be affected, assuming the crew
is possessing the Gun
As an example, lets assume a BAZ 45 firing at an emplaced, small target size
gun and crew at a range of 2 hexes.
TH# for BAZ45 at 2 hex range is 9, TH DRMs are +2 Gun emplacement, +1 small
A TH DR of 1,1 (a Critical Hit) destroys both gun and crew [C11.4]
An original TH DR of 7 or more will be a miss.
However, lets say the Original TH DR was 3, 2; with the +3 TH DRM the Final
TH DR is an 8 so the BAZ obtains a Hit
A DR is now made on the IFT to determine the effect on Gun and crew. This
will be with 8FP, the HE Equivalency of the BAZ
If the Final DR (prior to applying any Gunshield DRM) is a KIA, this is a
Direct Hit and the Gun and and its manning crew are destroyed..
If the Final DR (prior to applying any Gunshield DRM) is a K#, this is a
Direct Hit and the Gun is Malfunctioned and the manning crew suffer Casualty
If the IFT DR (prior to applying any Gunshield DRM) does not result in a
Direct Hit, then a Near Miss has resulted, and the +2 Gunshield DRM (if the
Gun has a Gunshield) is applied to the IFT DR to determine the effect on the
So lets say the IFT DR of the 8FP attack was 4,1. The Original DR is not a
KIA or K# result, so it is not a Direct Hit. It is a near miss and the +2
Gunshield DRM is applied to make the Final IFT DR a 7, which means the crew
takes a 1MC. If the Gun did not have a Gunshield, or the attack was from
outside the Gun CA and so Gunshield is NA, the there is no modification of
the IFT attack so the original DR of 4,1 is also the Final DR. This is
sstill a near miss, but now the crew takes a 2MC
