What happens when a Weapon Team is shaken ?

Rule 5.1 states "A Shaken unit is flipped to its Shaken side.". But a Weapon Team has no such side. So what do you do ? Do you place a "shaken" counter on it ?

Since it has no reverse side, what are its characteristics ? How many movement points does it have ?
(In our last game, a British 57mm ATG failed its morale check. Does it still have 1 Movement Point ?)

Rule 1.7 is silent about shaken WTs. So is paragraph 5.1 (DFT results).

Yes place a Shaken counter on it. It cannot fire, just like all shaken foot units. It gets half its movement points, so a 1 goes to 1/2, which is rounded up to 1.

A great thanks for your speedy response. This clears it !

I realize the "Weapons Team paragraph" (1.7) is quite incomplete. I hope the next version of the rules will fill the gaps.
Moreover, 1.7 does not mention that WTs can self-rally (this information is buried elsewhere in the rules).

We are having a great time playing LnLT, cardboard and digital.

HI Arnaud! Welcome to the LNLT family. And if needed, you can ask your questions in French; c'est ma langue maternelle :)

A few comments, to complement Bartheart's anwer:

Concerning the shaken side:
1) Some WT have a "proper" shaken side. They are the ones that don't use the OFT, essentially MG and Mortar WT.
2) Some of the OFT WT counters in the mroe recent games also have a red band at the bottom of their back side, indicating this is their shaken side, in which case you don't have to use a Shaken marker.
3) Yes, next version of the rules should specifically mention they get half of their MA, rounded up, like this was done for vehicle

Concerning the self-rallying ability of WT
a) Section 1.7 clearly indicates, in the second paragrah, that all WT can self-rally
b) Most WT, if no all, have the SR superscript on their back, meaning they can self-rally, as indicated on page 9 and section 3.0.
