Default Tanks in Close Combat

I've been collecting for a year now and I was just wondering. What do Tanks do when they get into close combat ???
I searched throughout my whole codex and I still couldn't find anything ???

Go to the index and look for tank shock it is the closest thing to CC there is for tanks. The dreadnaught stuff should be right next to it. ...I think.

The manager opens his dictionary and reads:

This is not the kind of thing that would be in the codex its a rulebook thing. Just so you know.

As for the rule nothing. Tanks cannot be locked in combat. When your turn comes they can just drive away. The enemy may choose to assault the tank but they are not locked and the unit can still be shot at.

No you cannot target a specific part of the tank. It just depends on whether you are attacking front, side or rear armor. There is a damage chart for the vehicles, read the rulebook it explains everything there is to know about vehicles.

Hehe

Ok, sarcasm aside, shasomazza, I suggest you read the rulebook, if you haven't already. The Codex compliments the rulebook - you won't find the core rules in the codex.

Well if you can, get hold of the Battle for Macragge rulebook. If you can get it separately, it's a lot cheaper than the big one. Or alternatively, get the BFM set, and you have some terrain you can use etc, along with a smaller version of the rules (and more portable).

Otherwise, borrow the book, or get hold of it for a while somehow, and have a good read of the core rules (which is what the BFM rulebook is).
