11.4 & 3.2.3: Can a broken infantry unit owning a broken weapon repair that weapon if possible? (I know they cannot fire operable weapons if on their broken side). Again, many thanks in advance - didn't seem clear in the rules.

If a randox hex falls within the repair range, sure.

Don't have a rule reference, but broken weapons can either fixed or eliminated whenever a random hex number is drawn. Look at the number ranges on the "broken" side of the weapon, and pay attention whenever a random hex number is drawn.

Yes. The status of the unit has no bearing on the FIX/ELIM result of the random hex check.

This is a case of interpret the rules strictly. There is no indication in 11.4 that the possessing unit has to be in good order for a weapon to be fixed, so don't assume the case.

Similarly, the only prohibition for broken units and weapons in 3.2.3 is that they can't FIRE them, so don't add any other prohibitions.
