Dear IG Community,
Quick question: If a guard infantry squad is in base to base contact with the rear armour of a tank, would enemy units (i.e. Genestealers) assaulting the front or side of the tank attack still get to automatically direct their attacks to the weakest armour of the tank?
Yeah, they do.
The rear armour rule isn't about the assaulting unit literally running around to hit the rear armour, it's about the fact that troops that know what they're doing can cripple a tank up close. Lots of weak spots (hatches, vision slits, etc...) that can't really be hit from a distance are easy to go after when you're up close and personal.
In short, all the armour in the world isn't any good if the enemy manages to ram a grenade through a firing port or something!
Or ram a cork down the barrel in true slapstick style....

...or stick a banana in the exhaust pipe...
I always liked sugar in the gas tank personally.
What do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
I suddenly see a team of ork tank-killer-close-combat types running towards a tank, one of them holding a gigantic cork over his head.
I've gotta get me an ork just to model that.
There is no AV data for the top and underside of vehicles. I was entertaining the idea of a Grot crawling underneath a Land Raider with a Super-stikk bomb in hand...who says that the bottom of a Land Raider has to have the same thickness as the front?
Top AV is equal to side AV, as per the rules on hitting vehicles with a barrage.
