Default Railgun Submunition Question

Seeing as it's a "template weapon" of sorts ... do you roll to hit or does it auto-hit anything under the template?

The reason I ask is b/c I'm fielding my Railhead (for the first time) against some 'Nids today at my local GW shop and I know that is all my tank will be doing for 6 turns (barring a lucky glancing hit).

Cheers~!

Roll to hit as normal, on the HH BS. Place the large blast, and anything under is hit, anything touched is partial as normal. Note there is no scatter as it is NOT an ordanance weapon, it simply uses the large blast.

Since it's not ordinance, It won't scatter.
