Default Sniper Rifle Question ???

Is the Sniper Rifles Pen Armor on a roll of 4+ 2d6 or just 2d6 ? The Guard player in my group says it's the 4+ 2d6 but thats not how I read the rule.

I haven't found a answer on the old topics .

Thanks for any help.

When you fire at a non vehicle unit, you wound on a 4+ regardless of toughness, and 2D6 against vehicles. Not 4 + 2D6.

Hit that guy with the rulebook until he passes out. He's either an idiot or a cheat; it's written in plain english, clear as day.

Yet another rule why I hate the current sniper rifles...

(In addition to: I've got a clear shot at his neck... nah, I'll fire at his chest-plate.) <AP what!?

Right, 2D6 regardless of toughness.

Which means they can only glance AV12.

They are pretty wussy, it has to be said. Everything's fine, it's just their stupid AP value that pisses me off.
