Default Boats

Not sure wether this should go on the IG forum of here, but is there a proper navy Imperiall navy arm? armys in world wide conflict would still need to get supplys from a less ravaged continent, or would evrything come in by space ship?

all space ships probaby. the imperial navy is the crew of battle barges and things, not real boats. boats seem a bit primiative, even though chimeras are amphibious.

The Imperial Navy is the space fleet, so no water vessels of any kind. Although, I'd think that the PDF of a world with large oceans on it would run some form of Navy all on their own.

And so are Leman Russes and Gorgons.

A russ is most certainly not amphibious! The Chimera is, the Gorgon is, but the Russ is not in any way amphibious!

Actually, there are amphibious forms of the Russ. For example, on Armageddon, roughly a third of the Minervan Tank Legions were amphibious. This is where I got the info from. Check it out!

Edit: Omigosh! Guv's back! ;D

Wow, i had to idea there where amphibious russes. My guess is that certain worlds will probably have fishing boats, and transport boats, but no combat boats. Maybe escort gunships, but i dont think they'd have anything bigger than a destroyer.

I think boats are pretty much outdated now, with space travel, and valkryie(sp?).
