energy weapons ranges

do lasers have range bands or can they shoot anything at no penalty what so ever (sorry if this is a repeat from the other discussion, didn't realize where i was )
Laser firearms have range bands just like any other small arm. Ship lasers follow the ship combat rules (book not handy right now to check that).
It is vehicle-mounted laser weapons that have a "sensor range" range band. So for all intents and purposes they have line-of sight with no penalty to the attack.

I think the medium laser is one heck of a weapon, maybe a little too powerful for the power input required.
that's what got me too, the medium laser tears everything up since you can shoot it before a missile has the range to hit the target... in fact i think about everything requires such a close range compared to the lasers, it's a wonder they use anything else
