Default Tank Shocking Fearless Units

So I was looking through the rules, and then I realized that to tank shock, the enemy needs to make a morale test to see if it pass or fails.

Then I realized that with Fearless Units, they automatically pass all morale tests. So this has me wondering; if you tank shock and Fearless unit, did you just waste your tank's movement? Or does something else cooler and/or funner occur?

They passed the Morale Test automatically and have a chance to pop your tank >

Or, if it's impossible for them to harm your tank, you get a free kill!

But only if they elect to take death or glory.
When the test is passed, then can move out of the way. And if they can harm the tank, gank its rear armour next turn.
But if they can't harm it and do death or glory they deserve to loose the model.

Most of the time, fearless is just that, not being scared when a tank is speeding towards you. No retreat is the only time I can think of that a fearless can die from being fearless.

Or you could surround the unit with vehicles then... squish! I've done that to a marine squad, it was alot of fun, for me anyway. >
"They shall be my finest Cannon Fodder, these men who give themselves to me. Like clay I will mold them and in the furnace of war they will become cracked and broken. They will be of tissue paper and whimpy muscle. In tissue paper armor I clad them and with the mightiest flashlights they will be armed. They will be touched by every sort of plauge or disease to help further make them unhappy, all sickness will blight them. They will have almost no tactics, strategies, but lots of machines so that they can atleast stand up to a foe in battle. They are my tar pit against the Terror. They are the bulk of Humanity. They are my Imperial Guard and they will know much fear!"

A fortress circumvented ceases to be an obstacle. A fortress destroyed ceases to be a threat. Do not forget the difference.

Tank shock does have one very important use in 5th ed. however: cover flushing. After fighting a 3 monolith army with Kroot mercenaries, I learned the hard way that there is no guarantee of safety when enemy vehicles decide to occupy the only span of protection available.
"I have exactly one-hundred men under my command counting on ME to lead that charge, you two-bit mechanic. I have five seige tanks, eight APC's, an artillery platform and a light mech that need resupply and repair by dusk. I need remote mines set, trenches dug, and my men fed and rested, or those Marines are going to be using us for toothpicks. Get it done, Fio'vre." Officer Sherwin Jackson, 13th Dal'yth Company, to Fio'vre D'nan

It's only good for one thing against a Fearless unit.
