Default Counts as Troops, Scoring Unit?

Hey all, A Big Mek has the rule that you can take a Deff Dread as a troop choice. As the Deff Dread is now a troop choice does that mean its also a scoring unit?

EDIT: NVM page 90 tells me it does not count as it is a vehicle :-(

You can always use this as a means to fit in MORE deff dreads.

Sadly enough, the DeffDread is not a scoring unit.
However (I often do this), you can place him as a troop unit in DOW (as arsenal1989 mentioned), and also he frees up the heavy slot that you could then fill with oh, say Killa Kans or a Battlewagon.

Best,

If you have one that counts as Troop, why can't it score?
EDIT: because it's a vehicle. p90
In skimming, I misinterpreted the post above.
