Default Ork Trukk KABOOM result, is wrecked or exploded?

Ok what happens on a kaboom result this has given me grieve in the past im a bit unsure it just says 'vehicle is destroyed'

Doesnt say that it counts as an explode result so i always assumed it ends up as wrecked did i miss something?

I'm pretty sure that "vehicle is destroyed" means that it explodes, so you replace the trukk with difficult terrain.

However, you do what the table says to determine what happens to the occupants, rather than what normally happens to them when the vehicle explodes.

This is how I read it aswell as for me it is showing the ramshackle nature by blowing up even from the initial, hit could have been less.

Although if you roll and 5,6 then this is where I become less sure of what to do. Any ideas?

I would say that it becomes a crater. The 5-6 entry specifically leaves a wreck. The 1-2 entry is pretty clearly an explosion, given the radial damage.

Essentially, all Ramshackle does is replace entries 5 and 6 on the regular damage table with a variant of the same rules. It makes it a little easier on the boyz if the Trukk is Wrecked, but it makes the Explodes! result more likely and less predictable. I don't think it means that the trukk itself is never removed.

Well, it says it's wrecked, doesn't it? So I'd assume that means it's wrecked rather than destroyed.

Only entry 5-6 says "wrecked". Kaboom! says "destroyed".

For results 1-4, the truck explodes and leaves either a crater or nothing.

For results 5-6, the truck wrecks and becomes a terrain piece
