Default Shooting at vehicles

Like my subject says (sort of), how do you shoot at vehicles? Are there rules about shooting at them if they move/don't far enough? Or, do you just use you normal BS skill?

Normal BS, unless weird and wonderful weapons (ordnance and flame spring to mind)

i believe hes talking about shooting at immobilized targets, with any benefits, and fast skimmers, with any penalties.

without breaking copywrite laws (the GW ppl want you to PAY for their information.. hmph) ill give you just the 'gyst':

chances of shooting at things dont get better or worse no matter what the vehicle does. where you may have heard the confusing rule is that close combat attacks against stationary (not just immobilized) vehicles auto-hit. heh.. hard to miss the broadside of a LandRaider... with an axe.

the other end of the confusion would be the fast moving skimmer rules.... they dont affect your chances of hitting, but do affect the changes of damaging.

basically, the only thing that im aware of that increases a shooters chance to hit is the Markerlight. most other special rules (preferred enemy?) only affect close combat attacks.

Well done Calaban, nicely avoiding all sensitive copyright areas and still giving some information anyway.
