Default A question on vehicle upgrades

With so many pleasant, new, and innovative upgrades for our skimmers I must ask exactly what an obscured target is? I'm wondering if it would lead more to the effect of smoke launchers on a Rhino, or hull down on normal vehicles, or maybe i'm off on both. Is anyone more familiar with it?

Correct. Hull down is simply counting penatrating hits as glancing hits instead.

An obscured target is exactly as Lonely Tau and Lanfeix said combined.

Quote:
If the target is obscured and a penetrating hit is scored, the vehicle's owner rolls a D6 - on a roll of 4+, the penetrating hit is downgraded to a glancing hit.
Ref: Rulebook p.69.

Nice and easy.

Hull down is not simply counting penetrating hits as glancing. Hull down is being an obscured target, which means you roll a dice for each penetrating hit.
