Does aiming work for thrown weapons? The Core Rules limit aiming to a “ranged attack” (p. 71). So a Traveller may ‘aim’ a thrown dagger but not a thrust from a handheld dagger?
I'd say 'aiming' in the sense of the rules is taking care to hit a target and I would allow that for thrown weapons. Aiming a dagger thrust would be more like a 'called shot' (well: 'thrust', really), making sure to hit a specific location of the opponent. That was my first impression at least.

Yes, any ranged attack can benefit from aiming, and thrown weapons are ranged attacks. Exception: Auto fire.
Thanks for the answers. Yes — that makes sense to me, too. This is a great forum. I appreciate the help.
