|Definitely a touch confused on damaging gunboats.
From 7.15b, a damage result on a gunboat (presumably from the Combat Table) causes 4 SFB damage points, reduces movement allowance by 2, and removes 1 weapon (via 7.15e).
The Combat Table however refers to everything in terms of SFB damage.
Assuming the Combat Table is correct, there are a couple of questions:
Let's say the dice roll for Marines vs a Gunboat = 11.
11 / 2 = 5.5 (round up or down? - mathematically it's up, but most wargames seem to go with a round down method)
I'll assume rounding down, so the final result is 5 - 4 = 1 SFB Damage.
Since 7.15b seems to imply that it takes 4 SFB damage points to reduce movement allowance by 2, and remove 1 weapon, what happens when the gunboat takes less than 4 SFB damage points?
(Overall this looks like a fun game, but of course I immediately gravitated to the scenario which has units that make it the most 'Star Fleet-y' compared to other tactical games... )
