All fire at targets at a different altitude than the gun firing is conducted with a die roll modification of +1 to the hit number. Thus, at close range, shots would only hit on rolls of 4, 5, or 6, and at long range they would hit only on a roll of 6. If fire is possible at a higher target, add 1' to the range for every level higher the target is compared to the firing vessel. Thus, a target 2' away and two levels higher would be fired at as if it were at a range of 4'. Firing at targets at lower elevations does not add to the range.
If a conveyance is hit by a gun which has a penetration more than twice the armor value of the conveyance, roll a die. On a result of 1-3, the hit is resolved normally. On a roll of 4-6, the round passes through the target without exploding. Hit location is still rolled, and the shot causes damage, but the round is treated as if it had a damage value of 1, regardless of its size. Note that rounds which already have a damage value of 1 are unaffected by this rule. If this optional rule is used, this roll will always have to be made versus unarmored conveyances unless they are fired at by a gun with a damage value of 1 already.
