    What do Skimmers count as?

    I was reading through the vehicle moving and shooting summary when I thought: "What do the Grav-Tanks count as?"

    The Codex says for the Falcon and Fire-prism: Fast, Skimmer. Does this mean that they come under the heading "Fast vehicle" or "Neither Fast nor a Walker"? Previously I had always taken it for granted that they were in the "Neither" category, but then why would it say Fast? So here I am.

    they are both, fast and a skimmer. When you use movement and shooting, they come under the fast vehicle on the reference sheet. I hope that helps.

    Skimmer for movement purposes and fast for shooting puposes. Skimmers are much harder to hit in both hand to hand combat and with ranged weapons. Fast vehicles have greater flexiblity when it comes to moving and shooting your full compliment of weapons. They are not a fast vehicle in terms of movement only shooting, so I guess really grav-tanks count as skimmers with the ability to shoot on the move unlike other vehicles that have to choose between mobility or firing that big gun/s.
