When a vehicle or drone attacks from a weapon mount, does recoil modify the attack roll as normal?

If so, can firearm accessories which provide recoil comp. (such as Gyro Stabilization) be built into the vehicle? This is different from the vehicle mod gyro mount from Arsenal, which only compensates for the vehicle's movement.

Try looking in Arsenal, p105. This hint taken from the Arsenal Errata.

It looks like this is a known bug, try this discussion for... a discussion.

Hah! Drone cheat sheet suggests: 6. Subtract the Recoil Compensation from the number of rounds fired this Phase, then subtract one; the dif ference is the recoil modifier.

I think the drone cheat sheet is mistaken on that count. The recoil penalty for burst and full auto fire modes is not -1 per bullet fired. The page ref. in Arsenal answers my question, though. A motorcycle with 6 body should be able to handle an assault rifle or LMG. Thanks =) – RMorrisey Oct 16 '10 at 23:49
My pleasure. Is why I tried to find you multiple links. – Brian Ballsun-Stanton Oct 17 '10 at 0:09
