Default Dedicated Transports

Yes, I know that this question keeps on coming up time and again. But do dedicated transports give away a kill point? Or are they considered an upgrade to the squad in the same way that a Heavy bolter or character is?

To my understanding it gives at KP (and the drones on the tau vehicule too in my understanding) since it's a second "unit" in the FOC.

dedicated Transport are a special category of upgrade. It's must be bought for the unit but it acts independently after it is bought.

The rules say that dedicated transports count as completely independent units, they are simply bought fora specific squad. They do not operate as an upgrade to or extension of the squad itself. So if you take one out you get a kill point even if the unit that came with it is still standing.

It still seems unfair that a Land raider gives away the same amount of kill points as a freaking Ork Trukk!

I see what your saying but the Nightbringer gives away the same kill points as a 35 point Palatine so it's not just vehicles.

Combat Squaded Space Marines+Transport=3KP
Combined Platoon IG squad of 50 men=1KP

KP is very stupid
