    Psybolt ammunition and hurricane bolters

    Ok so i'm considering a stormraven (ok maybe 2 >.<) and hurricane bolters obviously count as a defensive weapon, meaning with machine spirit i can always fire that and the assault cannon, with psybolt increasing strengh by 1 this potentially means that the hurricane bolter no longer counts as a defensive weapon.

    if this is true then:
    Hurricane bolter + Assault cannon for fire power and mobilty
    or
    Assault cannon + Psybolt for bigger armor punch/more efficient killy.
    or
    Hurricane bolter +assault cannon+psybolt for fire power and killy at potentially reduced mobility

    Storm raven's a fast vehicle, no?
    So as long as it's moving 6 inches, you can fire everything.

    i didn't question wether it was a fast vehicle or not, i questioned wether or not psybolt affects defensive weapon status. Not entirely sure of the point of your post tbh.

    I think he meant that even if you take the Psybolt Ammo (which would make those hurricane bolters no longer defensive weapons I believe), that you could still move and fire them. So either way you'd be allright, just a matter of how far you want your stormraven(s) movin'.

    Trying to be helpful. 40kfanatic got it. I'll try to be more painfully obvious in the future for your reading needs.

    ....and to answer your question:

    Re-read the rules for defensive weapons. Psybolt ammunition adds +1 strength.

    Defensive weapons are 4 or below.
    4+1 = 5.

    Psybot ammunition most certainly effects it.

    I'm disappointed. I had plans for psybolt ammo + land raider crusader, but now, I'm going to have to scrap that plan.

    Well, you can move and fire one, then POTMS the other, but you'd be down some others. I guess that's the downside.
