Hull Points are central to 40K now. They're basically Wounds for vehicles, Glancing Hits remove one without rolling on the Damage Table, Penetrating Hits remove one and roll for Damage.

Question on that so does the armor facing get broken down or do you have to pierce the armor amount before you can do dmg to the hull? And can you potentially destroy a 3HP vehicle in 1 shot/Unit attack.

You must always roll to hit and then upon success to penetrate a vehicle. Once you penetrate you roll on the damage table to see what sort of damage you do in addition to stripping a hull point from the vehicle (which acts as hit points for the vehicle).

The armour value stays the same no matter how damaged the vehicle becomes. The only exception to this rule is if you alter the vehicle's armour with a special rule (necron scarabs for instance can eat armour).

You can destroy a 3 hull point vehicle with a single shot if you penetrate it and roll an 'explode' result on the damage table.
