jsut to get some clarification on something. the hydra is listed as having 2 twin linked hydra autocannons. this means it should have 4 twin linked shots correct?
my friend however insists that it only gets 2 shots and are twin linked as a result o the 2 hydra autocannons.
just to get it cleared up and make sures i'm playing with the right rules
I got lost on the road of life
Well... at the beginning look at your Hydra model. Two autocannons (being twin-linked autocannon) left hand side, two right hand side. Two twin-linked total.
The same is stated in codex.
Your pell would be correct if it was written two autocannons counting as twin-linked autocannon... But no. You simply have two autocannons, oth of these are twin linked. Together 4 S7 AP4 72" range twin-linked shots wrecking banana-sized wholes in Power Armour. Yeah.
And you get a Heavy Bolter as well. And you ain't no open topped. Everything per 75 points.
Freaking awesome, isn't it?
banana sized holes... is that a reference to what the barrels look like when you pull them out of the box from forgeworld? just got mine in the mail last night, and still working the 'kinks' out of some of them heh.
If i remember correctly, Hydras are heavy 2. So that would be 2 shots twin linked.
Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?
Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?
so 2 twinlinked shots for each... 4 twinlinked shots per hydra =)
the codex entry can be slightly misleading on this due to the format it is presented on the 'fluff' pages, as there it has the profile for the gun itself. if you look at both this entry and the hydra profile under heavy support options together it clears things up - wargear: 2 hydra autocannons

another interesting bit to chew on... reading through the FAQ for the BOLSCon on bell of lost souls, they mention the following regarding the auto-targeting system on the Hydra:
Q. Do the other weapons on a Hydra Flak Tank benefit from the tank's Auto-Targeting System (e.g., hull-mounted heavy bolter, pintle mounted heavy stubber, hunter-killer missile, etc.).
Now this of course is their rule on things, and I don't have the codex with me at work to double check. does it state specifically shots from the hydra autocannon ignore cover saves vs skimmers that moved flat out, or does it simply say shots from a hydra tank? Thoughts on this?
Yep close topped, 2 hydra autocannons, each one having 2 shots, twin linked and extra range, a heavy bolter, and an almost non-existant price tag (points wise that is). Then it's even got theI don't care how fast you move rule, god I ish there was a cheaper way to get the FW model.

The rules for the Auto-Tageting System are non-specific.
Although, I'd probably play it as just the autocannons when using one myself, but ruleswise, nothing is stopping people from using the lot with that rule.

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
@ narcolepticltdThis would certainly seem to imply that even the heavy bolter or H/K missile, if you choose to equip it, would gain the benefit as well.Auto-targeting System: Skimmers cannot claim the cover save gained due to moving flat out against shots fired by the Hydra. Similarly, bikes cannot claim the cover save gained due to turbo-boosting against shots fired by the Hydra
