Default Striker Book 1 Rule 1 B Distance and Book 3 ranges

Evening all,

Striker Book 3 DS 2 K states that a weapon's direct fire range can't exceed the capability of the direct fire control system. The CPR Direct Fire ranges are in centimeters and the Direct FC ranges are in kilometers.

Book 1 Rule B Distance states that 1 cm = 10 meters. In book 3 the CPR Direct Fire Range Table on DST page the range is in centimeters and the Direct FC Table has range in kilometers.

At TL 9 the CPR gun Direct fire effective range is 100 cm.

Using the distance rule of 1 cm = 10 m the TL 9 effective range is 1,000 meters or 1 km.

A TL 9 Direct FC system's effective range is 2.5 km = 2,500 m, and in Striker's distance scale per Book 1 is 250 cm.

A TL 9 CPR gun with the effective range of 100 cm is well within the capabilities of a TL 9 Direct FC system of 2.5 km effective range if my calculations are correct, which I'm hoping they are.
