Default GW Main Page "Rock Hard Tanks"

"Rock Hard Tanks
In Warhammer 40,000, tanks are more resilient than ever before. They can also fire more of their weapons more of the time - and if shooting doesn't kill your foes, then you can drive into - and through - densely packed enemy units. Browse through our selection of Rock Hard Tanks - don't forget, you can add allied tanks to your army."
So this is on the title of the GW web page right now. What are the team over at GW smoking? Do they not realized that tanks are easier to destroy now with Hull Points added to the game and cover saves reduced? Or am I missing something here... I know it's easier to get a cover save, but obscured vehicles only get a 5+? Not to mention you can no longer assault from most vehicles, so many players have been talking about completely shelving or minimizing their tanks in their lists.

Does anyone else get the feeling that the GW dev team seems to keep getting more out of touch with the realities of game play and mechanics outside their play in the GW studio?

Also the choice of including some tanks and not others is odd. No SM Rhino, No SoB Vehicles?
