Sure is. But a Medium Missile Launcher with anti-vehicle missiles deals 7d6, AP 20, Mega Damage. That will average 29.4, AP 20 against the Dragon's 44 (20), or an average of one wound per missile hit (plus a second wound on average damage for Shooting with a Raise).
Then there are Heavy Rail Guns. RoF 3, AP 18, 4d10+4 (average 28.4 damage, AP 18, for a Shaken, or 32.6 with a Raise, for average two wounds).
A UAR-1 mounts both of those weapon systems. :arrow:

Well there ya go, I guess. Still seems odd to me, but I'll concede the point.

Yes an no.

If you get the Shapechange power through the HJ roll that gives you any Novice power...it is considered a Novice power, therefore not subjet to the Born a Hero rule and doesn't give you all its Legendary perks...You must get to Legendary first.

Yep, that's my bad. Gotta remember this stuff in the moment. Also, the Mystic had Soul Blast as his trapping which isn't allowed either apparently.
