IVhorseman wrote:Flying movement, even when technically used as part of a vehicle, is still movement. Operating a jetpack will always require either a standard action (which would leave a heavy unable to fire ANY weapon in the first place), or movement if the operator is also a pilot (which would also disqualify a heavy from compensating, since they're engaging in a type of movement). When firing a big gun from the deck of a ship on the other hand, a different minifig is piloting and using their movement: the heavy is free to go nuts.

The disadvantage of the Compensating Specialty is that the Heavy can't fire his oversized guns and hand weapons unless he has both feet planted firmly to the ground. On any turn in which the Heavy runs, jumps, Bails, uses an Angry Inch, or engages in any other type of Movement, he can't use any ability that requires the extra inch of Size from Compensating, although he may still take normal Actions like a regular Size 1" minifig.

A copter could carry armored minifigs, but not armored vehicles/structures.
