Default Skimmer Question

i know that if a skimmer is immobilized then it is destroyed.....my question is if the skimmer is destroyed does the unit inside get to take a save or not?

If it's a transport (falcon, wave serpant, devilfish) then it's exactly the same as if it was a rhino getting destroyed, in otherwords, yes they make the 4+ roll to see if they die, then get a save.

Just remember if the skimmer didn't move over 6", then the skimmer just lands and is not destroyed.

Also, the table on page 68 of the rulebook should make it absolutelt clear as to what should happen.

this is kind of related i guess. If a skimmer gets immobilised (not destroyed but is forced to land) do the other units in the squad have to maintain coherency or are they free to move off?

it happened in a game i played on saturday and neither of us were sure so we just said the others were free to move

They can move off but the skimmer that they leave behind is destroyed.

why is it destroyed if it hasn't moved?

it should just fall to the ground shouldn't it? it didn't move over 6" so it shouldn't crash and burn
