It means that Gauss weapons have a -2 on the chart since they can only glance, with the special rule.

Quite simple it is.

there is an table with 1-6 results. Gauss weapons get -2 on their dice roll so they can never directly kill a vehicle...the best they can do is destroying a weapon

Sjoerd, they can immobilise a vehicle. If its open topped they can destroy it, in a squadron they can destroy a vehicle. And if using sheer volume of shots multiple weapon destroyed or immobilised results can destroy a vehicle. Chck the rulebok... amazing enough it has rules in it

Gauss was overpowered before, "my basic warrior with the our most basic weapon can kill the most expensive tank in the game". It needed to be toned down. However, GW may have gone a little too far in reducing the gauss effectiveness, it is rumoured that when the new necron codex comes out gauss will only suffer a -1 on the penetration table. That's just a rumour tho...
