Can't find any mention of any vehicle except tank in the BGB, and would assume that vypers, like landspeeders are not tanks. Light APC's can't tank shock either correct?

Only tanks can tank shock. Whether a vehicle is a tank or not is indicated under the vehicle's "Type". A Fire Prism has "Tank" in it's "Type", but a Vyper does not. As such, it is not a tank and therefore cannot tank shock.
im not sure what a vyper is but I think that it is a skimmer and skimmers can tankshock so there you go
Only if that skimmer is also a tank. A Fire Prism is a tank, a Falcon is a tank, a Wave Serpent is a tank, but a Vyper isn't. Dark Eldar Raiders and Ravagers aren't, either.Originally Posted by Vengeance Strike Lord
Vengeance Strike Lord please do not answer questions with the completely wrong answer. Ostsol answered the question correctly, unless you have proof that he is wrong please don't go posting that he is
It makes the whole "rule question" forum pretty silly.
There is absolutely nothing in the rules that says skimmers can tank shock. Hence the name, "tank" shock not "skimmer" shock. You must be a tank and a vyper is not a tank
It also might be helpful folks, if you list a page number and the section.Originally Posted by Kirasu
In this case, p 70, under skimmers, it clearly states that "skimmer Tanks can tank shock", just not plain skimmers.
