Currently, the reference rulebook does not list weapons for the Vudar planetary defense monitors (both types, rules 5L6a and 5L6b). I can't find these rules in Module F2, but Module R11 does have rules for the light monitor.

Could this be something to include in the new revision in the works (if it's not finished already)?

Did the Vudar even use full size monitors?

I'm guessing Ion Cannons in the main weapon mounts and Ion Pulse Generators in the "drone" mounts, but I could be wrong. I don't know if the Vudar historically operated heavy monitors or not, but they need to have their weapon options spelled out anyway.

Don't know if this thread: http://www.starfleetgames.com/federation/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=3141 might help - it's about Vudar Q-ships but the principle is probably the same.

I agree, the principle is the same, and it's pretty straightforward to figure it out, but the actual rule is just missing from the rulebook. Having it in there just eliminates all ambiguity and any rules lawyering.

We're actually unclear here in the ADB office if the Vudar have monitors are not. There is no definitive yes/no data.

Logically, it seems likely, but there is a Vudar OB published which doesn't list them, leading us to think there is some definitive data we just haven't found yet. Stay tuned for a decision.

OK, the Vudar do get Monitors after all.

The weapons to use are actually listed in the W&P rulebook on Page 2. The short version is that the forward weapons are Ion Cannons and the engine weapons are IPGs.

Thanks SVC and Mike. Sorry to prolong the process and create a last minute event.
