The AI treats selects one primary weapon, I believe the highest level giving priority to those listed first. If this is a linkedfire weapon the AI treats it as a primary weapon, firing only it. If the linkedfire weapon is not selected by the AI it fires properly as a linkedfire weapon.

Linkedfire weapons should be treated like launchers by the AI and never displace other weapons in AI weapon selection.

Launchers can displace primary weapons if launchers are not 'secondary. (Do not know about 'linked.) Had a starter Wolfen controlled by AI (in PSD) that would not fire its laser until it ran out of missiles first.

Speaking of which, autons that [R]eturn to ship lose 'secondary on all of their weapons that had them.
