Just making sure, does a vibro cannon ignore cover for targetting puposes? Meaning can you draw the line through a forest and hit both the people in the forest and the other squad behind the forest (the forest is more than 6" round)? I've read through the codex and it dosn't mention it except to say that complex targetting arrays allow them to pinpoint well hidden troops. I don't see how they would and not mention it, but if they do somehow ignore cover saves as well could someone mention that as well?
EDIT: Does the battery require only one cannon to hit for all three to count as hitting? that is the only way that the example given in the codex can be right and although it says add 1 strength for each platform after the first, in the example, one of the platforms misses, yet the total strength still comes to 6.

Yes to both questions.
In terms of the first, nothing stops the 'beam' - Any model/unit along the line crossed by the beam takes the hits.
The example in the codex is right. They become one big shaky weapon o' doom.

Also as you said, Rork: The Vibro Cannon affects *any* unit, so you can hit your own guys as well. It also has no restrictions about passing through combats either (unlike the Librarian power which halts just before a CC).
Sure is aE.big shaky weapon o' doom

There is a short note on how to play this weapon in the thread called "Vibro Cannon Rules" on the same page in the rules forum.
Make of it what you will (Wicky sneaks away with an evil grin!)
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
