    AA means anti aircraft. What this is does is that you regulary need 6's to hit an aircraft unit, but if it has the AA mount you roll your regular to hit roll to hit an aircraft. It can be used to fire at ground targets too.

    The titan killer, i believe your talking about str D weapons right?
    Strength D weapon, automatically penetrate ANY vehicle, and when you roll on the damage chart, you add +1 to your rolls. When used agianst other units that dont have an armor value, it atomaticaly wounds, no armor saves, ignores cover.

    These are from the apocalypse rule book

    "Normal" weapons have a difficult time hitting planes, AA (Anti-Aircraft) mounted weapons have a much easier time of it.

    Titan Killer, more recently known as Destroyer (or simply "D") weapons are really, REALLY powerful. As in well off the current Strength charts powerful. As in you, your buddy, and troops a block down the street who just happen to be in the same general vicinity as you are all dead powerful.

    That's about the best I can do without posting actual rules - this stuff is all detailed in the Apocalypse expansion book, so check that out for all the details... Suffice to say, it's a really big gun that's good at killing planes (and everything else)!

    EDIT: blasted slow typing...
    We've got plenty of youth... How about a fountain of smart?

    If the Necron Pylon is available online in pdf form on the GW site then I'd say your safe enough posting the Weapon details here..
    Arch Overfiend & Grand Despot
    I currently play:
    Doom Eagle Space Marines
    Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
    Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
    Tau of O'me
    Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters

    and my attempted foray into fantasy
    'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff

    Though I expect just linking the document would be quicker and easier.

    The rules for AA and Titan killer weapons can be found in the various Imperial Armour books, and possibly Apocalypse.


    Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.
