So I am not sure if Artillary is treated as a vehicle or infantry when a tank attempts to tank shock it. If it is a vehicle then that would mean that a vehicle can ram into an artillary and get an auto kill as the artillary dies on a glance of 10. Or is it like an infantry where you just do a leadership test and then move out of the way.
Their are plenty of arguments either way.
I would have to say the gun can be rammed by an enemy tank. In the Artillery description it says the guns are treated like vehicles, so they should be vulnerable to ramming attacks.
Now would the Gun get to perform a Death or glory attack?
It would not be an auto kill, only if the ramming vehicle was moving fast enough, and had enough modifiers.
It specifically gives rules for artillary in the tank shock section. It states that they may attempt death or glory. If a lone model does this (i.e. a gunner trying to death or glory with their small arm), than just the gunner dies if it fails. If an artillary piece is fired and fails both one gunner and the piece are removed.
So from that I presume they act wholy as infantry for tank shock purposes except for the double model squishing possibility.
I would assume, because it can do a death or glory including the gun, that it must be treated as infantry, as nothing you can ram can death or glory.
I never though of attempting to tank shock artillary, its an interesting idea.
D-cannons sound like fun for being tank shocked ^^
So for this rule it’s not classed as a vehicle.
And since ramming is only for use against a vehicle I would say that the only choice here is to Tank Shock it.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I would play it for what it is...not a vehicle and not infantry, but a combination of both. And the way I would play it would be this: if my tank heads towards an artillery unit and hits infantry first, it would be a tank shock as they are in the way. If it hits the gun model first, then it would be a ram attack as the gun model is in the way.Originally Posted by 5th Ed. BRB
