Default Cover saves from infantry

OK, we all know infantry get 4+ cover saves from other infantry, but do vehicles automatically get 4+ cover saves from a large group of infantry like a carnifex protected by gaunts, or does it actually have to obscure 50% of it? ie-a Leman Russ with a group of conscripts in front. Much obliged, I'm entering my Impeial guard in an upcoming tournament.

It needs to actually obscure approx 50% or more of the target

I would say CoD guardsmen would count as cover to the tank.

I don't think it would. Trust me i wish it did but my buddies would argue to death that since line of sight if from the models eyes and what not the tank would be visible.

So, if your conscript squad was close enough to the enemy, then you would gain cover, because from a model's eye view it would be more than 50% concealed.

yes the tank needs to be 50% consealed to gain cover
this also goes for a carnifex since a monsterous creture also needs 50% so a unit of gaunts won't protect it (neiter will area terain in both cases)
