speculative shot questions

its says you need forward observer to do a speculative shot (as per the fire mission rules).
Dark legions channelers are the forward observer for their fire missions.

does this mean a Dark legion channeler can spot for the unholy carronade.

cause if this the case, that would be crazy kool

Yes they can spot for the Carronade.
I actually had that planned for my next scenario with Dave :)

While the channelers do act as FOs there is one small problem with that,

the Carronade, like all cannons,  is Direct Fire only.  You can not do spec fire with a Carronade.

as far as I can remember, other than a handfull of grenades and UBGLS, the DL doesn't have any indirect fire weapons.  Which is probably a good things as half their troops are either dead and therefore dumber than a doorknob or immoral and as much a danger to their own forces as anyone elses.

Yeah, I'd had a similar idea and had similarly disabused myself of the idea after some quick fact checking.
