Is the Lascannon AP going to change to 1?
In the new WD in the Armoured company summary the Lascannon clearly has AP1.
Just thinking will this change apply to the SM and IG aswell. Although that does seem rather obvious <_<

When I say jump you don't ask me 'How high?' maggot! You jump!
I have not read that White Dwarf, are you sure it isn't a typo?
If it isn't I guess it could be in preparation of 4th edition with the new rule that weapons with an AP of 1 can only inflict penetrating hits due to the fact that they are meant to be awesomely powerful weapons, and I'm guessing that they feel the Lascannon fits into this category and could be changing it's AP.
your right about it,
it could be a printing mistake but then again it might also be in preparation for the 4th edition
this could also seen as a way that termie armour might get changed
As if Lascannons weren't powerful enough already... *shakes head*
If this is true, it's probably going to turn into the second most-feared tankbuster, right after the Railgun.

Wait...what about with fast skimmers, where, when you move more than 6", all hits are GLANCING. What will they do to that rule?
Probably still stay as glancing, they are just so dang fast!
yeah it would seem that the Lascannon AP is going to change to 1. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. There good enough as they are!
I assume they will outline in the new rulebook exceptions to the rule such as Skimmers moving fast, the Hull Down rule and anything other such exceptions.Wait...what about with fast skimmers, where, when you move more than 6", all hits are GLANCING. What will they do to that rule?
For example, Skimmers moving fast might remain as Glancing because it is extremely difficult to target a vital area (or they will make AP 1 weapons able to get a penetrating hit on a 4+ or something similar to represent that wherever they hit they are so powerful they will will cause damage).
now the tankhunter skill will be even better with the LC unless it is a simple printing error
It is a printing error.
