Default Valkyrie AAC

Just a quik question. I own the orriginal Imperial armour book and I have been looking at the Valkyrie recently. I cant seem to find out how many men it can carry and what else it can carry apart from troops. Could someone please help me?

Ah, I'm pretty sure Forge World released a Q&A pdf file that answered this question and others.

If I remember correctly, I believe it's 12 men.

thank you.

Also I was wandering if I need a transport aircraft in order to drop troops behind enemy lines.

yeah it's 12.

and no the you do not have to have a valkryie to drop troops, but I believe you do have to have drop troops(or at least deep strike such as storm troopers) to take a Valkyrie.

I'm not sure with the Valkyrie but i know you don't have to have a Valk to deep strike.

Yes, grav-chutes is a doctrine, right up there with Mechanized

Imperial Armour Volume 2 remembered to put in the transport capacity, so if you're in any doubt you can just buy the second book.

Yeah, its a flying Chimera with more guns. And it says it is a transport option for either a Drop Troop squad or Storm Troopers.

I'm locking this as there's nothing more worth saying.

If you have something positive to say, send me a PM. If you want to complain, send a message to Wargamer. He'll help you. :P
