Default Skimmers in 5th edition

Just heard a rumor that there will be no skimmers in 5th edition. Skimmers will be counted as Fast Vehicles only. >
Has anyone else heard this rumor, or does anyone know if there is any truth about it? ???

That is not what I have heard, although they have definitely been changed. It looks like Tau skimmers are going to have to use cover for protection, and the Eldar's ability to protect themselves with speed will be diminished.

No offence exinfris but can we wait for 5th edition rather than post hese random 'what i heard' threads

On the topic there are going to be skimmers but as i understand it the 'moving fast' protection is being removed (might be a cover save instead) and like all other things the weapon/movement wil be changing a bit

I am having a hard time shedding any tears for skimmers. :P My friends 3 falcons will be much less annoying. Although with the rending nerf my horde bugs will still probably get squashed by that army. :'(
