Thomas, the only rule that makes sense to me across the board is, every army gets the same number of 1-shot rockets. If you want to count them for victory points instead, please do - that might work really well under your local conditions.

One of the invisible constraints is that 1-shot rockets are expensive, in terms of Legos and real money. I've never seen a rocket design that requires less than like 45¢ worth of parts. The best looking ones are 75¢ to $1.00! Add even two dull-looking rockets to your mech and you've increased its real-world price by 25%.

Consequently, I don't expect "but I WANT to field 6 rockets per mech" to come up all that often.

Only those little round bricks with fins? 'Cuz you can make a bitchin' rocket out of a 1x1 round plate, a 1x1 round brick (sans fins), and the bottom of one of those little gear shift pieces. Or hell, just a round brick and a cone.
