Default AP and Area Terrain

In regards to area terrain, while units are taking cover in area terrain is their armour still affected by the AP value of a weapon? For example a mob of orks takes cover in some ruins, and are then shot by a starcannon - AP 2, while the orks are in the ruins they are allowed to take their cover save of 4+. Now say that a group of terminators are in the same set of ruins and are also shot by a starcannon. Would the AP 2 of the starcannon negate their 2+ armour save and force them to take a 4+ cover save or would the be allowed to maintain their 2+ armour save regardless because they are in cover?

They would only get the 4+ cover save, the ap still indeed negates armour ^^

Pretty much a perfect answer there.

All I want to add is, that if the AP negates their armour, they get the cover save. If it does not, they take the best save.

I thought you chose what save to use.

Most of time one would want to use the best save but say you are a chapter with the trait that gives you an invulnerable save your five man tactical squad might be faced by ten striking scorpions. When they shoot you might be able to stop them charging by using hte worse save. this lets you get another turn of shooting them.
