Just to confirm the Sparrowhawk-J is only limited to firing a single S torp every four impulses and not a single one of those launchers?

Rock,

Yes the Sparrowhawk J is limited to Firing only 1 Plasma S every 4 impulse so the most it could fire is 2 Plasma S's per turn. Or it would take it 12 Impulses (A Turn and a Half) to fire all 3 of its Plasma S's.

Note that the Plasma F's are not bound by this exception. So you could fire a Plasma S and both Plasma F's in one Impulse then Fire a second Plasma S 4 impulses later.

Ummmmm... no... you can wait for a official notice but I think the "shock" rules still apply when you down grade the warhead. Shocked Good thought though, but, seeing how the Fed BCJ or Klink F6 can't do it I doubt the Sparrow Hawk Assault variant will get a pass. Sad

Again, Dal is correct. The limit is on the launchers, not the torpedo type.

So, you may fire a torpedo from one of the Pl-S launchers every four impulses. There is no restriction on the Pl-F launchers (or on any of the other weapons on the ship).
