Default Gorgon Aussault Carrier QU

A gorgon can carry up to 50 models, does this mean that it can carry multiple squads, or is this just so that you can fit a fully maxed out infantry platoon into it?

It can carry mutiple squads(unless conscripts are the only unit that fills it up) An infantry platoon is after all mutiple squads taken in the same Force orginazation spot.

Why not?
The gorgon is it&#39;s own undedicated transport(much like a heavy support LR) that can carry any units.

It might have had a rule or reason that doesn&#39;t let conscripts in,I&#39;ll reread it.

It does http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/pdf/gorgon.pdf

"The following Imperial Guard Squads may be carried in a Gorgon. Command Squad, Infantry Squad, Heavy Weapon Squad, Storm Trooper Squad, Hardened Veterans, Ogryns (each takes up 2 spaces), and a special weapons squad. Attached advisor&#39;s may also be transported.

Up to 2 cyclops and and their controllers may be transported in a Gorgon. Each cyclops counts as 10 men."

Yeah,I didn&#39;t remember that but thank you for correcting me.

That reson alone should prove that it can hold mutiple squads.(why else would you want to hold 50 men if you can only put 10 in there?)

Couldn&#39;t any vehicle hold 2 units if they both fit,presuming it&#39;s not a dedicated transport?

No, I think there is a rule that only allows transports to carry single squads. The Gorgon can carry multiple squads because:

A-it is massive!

&

B-it is awsumn!

I can see a few House Rules emerging to allow the Gorgon to carry a single tank... I can see these guys hauling a Medusa Siege-Gun! ;D


Plus the whole "D-Day Lander" thing they have going really does suggest you could plonk a tank in there.
