Yeah zrbite isn't much of a mystery. The bit that threw me was the fact that I had brought one, and ONLY one hydrojet cannon to the scrap in the case when it showed up. That weapon was still in the hands of the agent who's sidearm it is, being used to roast enemies out of hidey-holes and blow things up. If it were going to do its whole being in two places at one time routine and simply switch back and forth, I think likely or not it would be viewable, especially if one was checking for anomalies in anticipation of their being one. And it was not in a backpack, but in his hand, sonic cannon in one grubby mitt, hydrojet in the other, firing away.
Another odd thing is the gas cannons that show up, that one HJC, they all seem to be loaded with explosive ammo. Think this would change if there had been AP rounds on board? I don't use them, only HE sometimes but far more often, I use WP, and keep HE rounds for storming USOs, when using away from power sources since the enemy are close to walls usually and the splash damage is good at fighting most things that aren't tasoth or lobstermen, and even tasoth if aiming right beside the limits of their line of sight, hitting a wall next to them and keeping on hammering. Not conservative of ammo and I haven't tried it on genius, I just send some hapless rookie sod in their first haha. Have had zrbite, gas cannons several times, a hydrojet, even a torpedo launcher. And IIRC I don't THINK at the time I even HAD a torpedo launcher on board the transport.
