Can't seem to find a thread on this, nor can I find it in the rulebook so I'll ask here.
Vehicle explodes, say... 6 inches. Does this affect units on a higher level of a ruin. If so, how, (Do you measure from hull to unit at a vertical angle, or just hull to where the'd be if they were on the ground floor?
Though it states the explosion sends burning debris in all directions, which -you could argue- includes all dimensions (resulting in a sphere-shaped area of effect that could well affect models on higher ground rather than a two-dimensional blast) our gaming group treats vehicles explosions as a blast weapon hit.
And since the blast is centered on the vehicle which is on ground level page 84 of the rulebook will clarify that it does not affect units on upper levels of a ruin.
As for measuring distances between models on different levels read page 82 of the rulebook. This is very self-explanatory.
