If I score an ordinance penetrating hit on a skimmer that's moved over 6" does it get downgraded to a glancing hit? It says in the book that penetrating hits are downgraded to a glancing hit if the skimmer has moved over 6" but ordinance penetrating hits seem different..do they stay penetrating hits as they are not 'penetrating hits' but 'ordinance penetrating hits' or are they downgraded?
They are downgraded, Oedinance penetrating hits table is to reflect the difference between a penetrating hit from a las cannon and one from really heavy artillery, however, it is still a penetrating hit, a skimmer will still downgrade it
good to know. darn skimmers are hard to take down

yeah I did some research rolling dice vs. the armor of a devilfish and only counted glances since they always move more than 6" every turn and it was pretty discouraging.
autocannon: 4+ to hit, 5+ to glance, 5+ to destroy
missile launcher: 4+ to hit, 4+ to glance, 5+ to destroy (but only one shot)
lascannon: 4+ to hit, 3+ to glance, 5+ to destroy (a little more encouraging but still only one shot)
I should take a AT squad with lascannons
