Default Open Topped

Are open topped vehicles vulnerable to blasts anymore? I haven't been able to find it in the 5th ed. rulebook. Anyone seen something I haven't?

No. Page 70 of the rulebook covers the changes made to Open Topped vehicles. Interestingly (and perhaps confusingly) the Vulnerable to Blasts special rule still mentions vehicles. So apparently some may be both. That would be harsh.

in 4Th they suffered both, I'm just curious if they still do. I couldn't find a page that says they do, but the vulnerable to blasts part makes it slightly ambiguous.

Unless the vehicle has the vulnerable to blasts USR in its profile they only take one hit from a blast weapon, the vulnerable to blasts USR is only explaining how you resolve the rule on a vehicle in case there is a vehicle that has it. The +1 damage roll makes up for not taking two hits when compared to enclosed vehicals, considering that now a single glancing hit from anything short of an orbital bombardment or melta is completely incapable of destroying an enclosed vehicle while almost any glancing hit can destroy an open topped vehicle.

Except that even in 4th you added +1 the damage result. So its not like anything was gained by losing the vernable to blast special rule.

I dunno, I think the transported models are vulnerable enough to blasts as is, since the vehicle is open-topped to start with. On a similar vein, but different question, can you kill crew of open-topped vehicles?

You can't kill the crew, they are part of the vehicle while they are in it.
