A) Yes (I think, the picture I drew from your example was a bit fuzzy)

B) Yes again.

ok, thanks..

one follow up question: RL (direct fire) and ap rockets:

at page 54 they say that indirect fire has damage reduction for failed to hit roles.

does that apply to rl - ap rockets as well? at p121 ranged templates follow that rule, but does that apply to direct fire weapons in the first place?

No, direct fire weapons either hit or they don't.  Directly placed templates such as flamers and shotguns, automatically hit.  The rocket launcher with AP rounds is kind of unique as it is a direct fire ranged template.  In this instance, you would refer to the rule on page 121 (as you have already noted) and reduce the amount of damage the RL does, according to the roll.

thank you, we had a game at friday (expect the report!) and they doubted it, as well as me.. (the rocket may as well pass over the enemy, exploding far behind the target..) nevertheless, we played it correctly and I killed 4 BB at one shot :)

Just as an addendum, given that the 12 inches would fall inside of "must target" range you would have to refer to the SquadLeader (Spotter/Gunner) Leadership to determine whether they fall within the Elite level or Grunt Level of determining Immediate targets.

as a Support unit, if their LD is below 12 and the enemy unit is within short range,  they must attack the closest target with whatever Small Arms weapons they have.
