Directional Torso Mount [BT]: whoops
:The player should treat the unit with this Design Quirk as if it has as a [[BattleMech Turret|BattleMech shoulder turret]].
Anything mounted in the shoulder regions will be able to change torso facing, like any regular a Mechtorso. However, this torso facing does not return to it's its original facing. The player must declare that they've changing facing of the torso from its last position when the next turn accrues. Weapons mounted in either forward or backward direction will be affected by the change in torso facing. Each time such a torso is hit (be it in the front or back), the player must roll 2D6 to determine if the ability to change torso facing is disabled. A Directional Torso will be considered destroyed if the attacking player rolls a 7 or better on a separate roll after hitting the section.<ref>''BattleMechManual'', p. 83 - Directional Torso Mount - Information on Design Quirk.</ref>
