Default what am i missing here

a few days ago i bought the necron codex and i was reading at the special rule for guass weapons and i noticed something odd. from the codex: "If a gauss weapon scores a glancing hit on a vehicle with a roll of 6 when it would not otherwise be able to damage it, and the vehicle is one which treats glancing hits as penetrating hits, such as the hellhound..."
the hellhound treats all glancing hits as penetrating hits!!!! where is this come from, its not in the codex and i dont know any special rules that would amke the hellhound count all glancing as penetrating. is this an old rule that got mixed into the necron codex before IG was updated?
go to the above to help me on a browser game

Under the old dex, hellhounds had this penalty for their massive fuel tanks...not sure if it got carried into 4th edition or even the new IG dex.
Due to an error in translation, the isolated colony of T'ves'kal'dai mistakenly worshiped the greater goose for seven generations. Reeducation efforts continue.

It's a rule from the old Guard codex, and it was removed when the codex was updated. The hellhound now has MORE armour than a chimera and is an all round more useful and expensive tank.

Though sometimes I do miss the ability to automatically force a fall back move on an enemy squad...
