It is against the board rules to give stats and rules copyrighted by GW away.

You can find all these rules in the Imperial Armour 3: The Taros Campaign.

Cheers,

According to AI Apoc.

Upper Deck Transport Capacity 48 + Command deck capacity 1 independent character plus his drone upgrades.

Lower deck transport capacity 140 (up to 4 vehicles, each count as 30 models) vehicles may be carried fully loaded at no additional transport cost.


EDIT - If the above isn't allowed, then can a mod edit it. And instead my answer to the question is yes you can transport anything as per the rules for non dedicated transports and the rules for transport capacity.

When I saw the topic title, I had the craziest idea that it was about someone asking for donations to help him or her buy a Manta... 0.o
At any rate, the full stats are listed in both IA 3 and IA Apocalypse. I don't own IA Apocalypse, so I couldn't tell you if they are the same.

That's what you thought the topic was, and you still clicked on it? Hmmm..... Would anyone like to donate to help me buy a Manta....I'm about $1750 short.

you couldn't get the manta because your about 14 and I doubt your parents would let you get one, I know mine wouldn't :P

Looking at my Taros campaign it can carry pretty much anything except aircraft, and yes it would be able to carry sniper drones.

Don't know why you want to know rules for manta anyway because even if you did get one nobody would play against it :P

Why does no one just mount an epic scale manta on a REALLY big base and use that in 40k? I can't see it technically breaking any rules...

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
