Default Ramming speed for the complete win

I was in my local GW yesterday, talking about the new rules and have a gander at the book thats out. The thing that keeps me amused is the fact you can ram things with a vehicle. This is the way i see it.

Take a landraider, its got 14 armour front so every point past 10 gives it a point. So thats 4 points, its travelled 6 inches, so for every 3 inches thats a point. So thats 6 points, and its a tank. So thats 7 points in total.

Now take a Falcon Grav tank, its got armour 12 so thats 2 points, its a tank so thats 3 and its travelled 24 inches. So thats 11 points in total. Blammo!

So theres your Pirahna, it got hit and its lost its burst cannon. Now with a mighty cry of for the Greater Good it can push the throttle to its max and tear its way into something and Boom! Bye bye whatever you hit. Im loving the 5th edition rules, thank god GW have pulled their act together and produced something fantastic.

Edit:Whoops damn, for some reason its in the Tau section. Can a mod stick it in general thanks.

So...5th Edition tau marks the coming of the kamikaze, which totally against the Greater Good's general philosophy...?

I like. 8)

You can only ram if you're a tank.

This means I finally have a use for my Chimeras which can never seem to hit anything! ;D

A Falcon brought down a Land Raider? That seems pretty unrealistic

A falcon moving 24" (the LR is 24" away") will cause a s10 hit on the enemy landraider.. and on its self too.

so there is as much of a chance of killing your own tank...especially if it has weak armor.

Well, it is a kamikaze tactic. Can't say that I've heard too many instances where a plane slams into an aircraft carrier and live through it.

Hell, I'll sacrifice a 85 point chimera to take out a 250 point landraider.
