Default Can Skimmers see over terrian?

Looked through a search but only found post that answered my question that were posted before your lastest and greatest codex. I know skimmers are not effected by terrian when moving and thus gain no benefit from terrian for obscurement, but are skimmers able to see over terrian ie: building, forest, hills, other size 3 vehicles and so forth?

No.

A skimmer cannot see over terrain and cannot be seen over terrain

UNLESS

A skimmer can choose to end its movement above a piece of area terrain in which case it can see over and be seen over that piece of terrain.

Either that or the terrain is designated as a level two, which in the case of all vehicles (level three) will be able to see through the terrain.

FYI, level two is the heigh of all infantry units.

Sweet been playing my tau buddy and he was claiming he could see over all terrian and I see him as well. This made it impossible to hide any of my units from him

Can you tell us about the level of terrain that you use if any? Do you guys play WYSIWYG (What You See IS What You Get)?

That will affect how the game is played .
