The Typhon has a max range of 48” in 40k or half that if it moves. 30cm doubled to 60cm seems too long ranged a translation of the gun. Could the gun have 20cm range so 40cm indirect? That would fit better. I know it's not a conventional range, but I don't think it matters that much as a one-off for an important weapon system myself.
Damn GlynG, do you have sort of 40K-autism? ;-)
Hmm... I wouldn't say autism but I'm a bit of a perfectionist in some ways if that fits? Also easily distracted and good at wasting time on things online when I really should be doing other things...

Minor correction - Terminator units of five only being able to take a single heavy weapon is pretty recent in terms of 40k background
Actually it's not at all - in both 1st ed. 40K/Rogue Trader and the 2nd edition 40k SM codex Terminators were limited to 1 heavy weapon per squad of 5. Background-wise this has never actually changed since. The 3rd and 4th edition codexes allowed two weapons per squad, however their squad size was 5 to 10 in these codexes so a full sized squad would have 1 heavy weapon per 5. The background article focussing on Terminators in Index Astartes IV (from around the time EpicA came out) also noted Terminator heavy weapons as 1 per 5. It's been limited again to 1 in 5 since 2008 and the 5th ed codex and is so in the HH setting too.
