Armor Piercing: Attacks with Teppo bullets reduce the defender’s AT by 2 for the purposes of calculating damage.
Fusillade: An attack by a squad equipped with Teppo is considered to be an area attack in a straight line with a width equal to the width of the squad. This attack hits a number of units equal to half the number of gunmen firing, rounded up. It is not possible for the attacker to choose targets; the first units in the line are the ones affected, up to the maximum number dictated by the number of units firing.
Reload (1): After being fired, a Teppo requires a complex action to reload. A unit may not move, attack, or take any other actions on a turn in which they choose to reload. In addition, while reloading, a unit takes the “Partially Immobilized” penalties to defense until their next turn.
