Default Just a simple Question...

I've read on the forums here that regular skimmers can move flat out, but from what i read in the rule book it says no such thing.

Under fast vehicles it mentions nothing of fast skimmers or regular skimmers, and under the skimmer section it only mentions that fast skimmers can move flat out at 24". There is no specific mention of skimmers allowed to move flat out to 18". Also under the weapons fire chart it says not applicable over 12" of movement.

So my question is CAN a regular skimmer go flat out?

*edit* hm, sorry this should be in the 40k section, if a mod would please move this? Thanks.

No - and Yes. Only Fast Vehicles can go flat out, Normal Skimmers can not.

A Piranha (being a Fast Vehicle and a Skimmer) can go flat out, and Fast Vehicle that is a Skimmer can move 24" (not just 18).

So.

Normal Vehicle - Cant go flat out.

Normal Skimmer - Cant go Flat Out.

Fast non Skimmer - Can move Flat Out up to 18".

Fast Skimmer - Can move Flat Out up to 24".

Pg71 under the Heading MOVING SKIMMERS last sentance in the section.

Also take note on the SHOOTING AT SKIMMERS since if they move flat out and are immoblized they are now destroyed.

The last sentance says skimmers that are also FAST. So shooting at skimmers that go flat out can only be on fast skimmers not regular skimmers. So what GoneFishing said is still stands.
