Default Manticore issue

well, i was really enjoying my regular read through of the IA1 book when i noticed that it said Manticores can be equipped with anti aircraft missiles. i would say this was reasonable, they would have a clear and effective role on the battlefiled, but there is no option or even notice of this comment in the list. what's worse, ord. weapons aren't even able to fire at aircraft unless specially fitted to fire at them. so why put it in?
your views?

Fluff doesn't always translate into rules. I'm glad it says it though because it makes it more interesting.

If you really want an AA Manticore though, I'm sure your opponent won't mind you using the 'updated' rules from Imperial Armour Apocalypse. It's only when you start fielding Super Heavies from the Apocalypse data sheets in a standard game that they might get upset. The updated rules for the Manticore aren't quite as game-breaking as the new Baneblade rules.

well i don't have that book, and to be honest, i have no interest in getting it.

whatabout maybe adding 30pts and allowing it to? does that sound fair pts wise?

oh, and on an unrelated note, have you checked out the modular thing? if yeah, what do you think?
since your the tank man i was hoping you could give me some good feedback on the outcome.
