Default Pintle Weapons

Hey everyone, if I am using a Leman Russ and include a Pintle Stubber from the Vehicle Upgrades list, does this cause the vehicle to be considered "open topped"? I only ask because the description for a chimera says that a gun can be fired from the top hatch but the vehicle is then considered Open topped... do the same rules apply for a Leman Russ or what? Thanks

No it does not, it basicly is just a weapon fired by a crew man popping his head out of the hatch and firing the weapon.

They actually do not even have to open the hatch. It can be remote controlled.

As has been mentioned by others it doesn't make your russ open topped. That said I really wouldn't bother putting it on a russ unless your running a LR Exterminator, as you generally wont get chance to fire it.

they also count as AA weapons doesnt relaly help cause even if its 4's to hit, its 6's to glance, but a leman russ with 3 heavy bolters and a pintle stubber has a decent chance against most armour 10 flyers.
