Its fair that once you have the right fire power in the right place lighter tanks are in trouble. But AP 13 and 14 vehicles are still tough, with Landraiders and monoliths being as hard as ever with 4 hull points and 14 all round armour they are resiliant to most attacks (except melta. lance and heavy ordenance).

I have been finding that close combat is actually the best way to blow up vehicles.
This pretty much

Transports you need to spam more than ever so some survive long enough to get where you want them, but other than that 6th ed has made tanks more shooty and mobile, but less survivable.

I can live with that.
