Default How many rolls?

One of the MGT threads tossed this up:

Now, where there is one person who plays Book 1 combat as needing separate range and penetration rolls before damage, there are probably more. I'm curious to find out whether this is common, as I suspect it *might* be behind a later trend in Traveller.
We are all playing different games that happen to have the same name.
