Default 5th Smoke Launchers

Pretty simple question up for debate, do you think smoke launchers will be as useful in 5th as they were in 4th? You now get ability to completely ignore a hit on a vehicle instead of just downgrading it but it only works on a 5+.

I think we should hold off discussing 5th ed rules in here until the book actually comes out.

The latest rumor I heard was that they gave a 4+ cover save, which is different than what you're saying.

I love the cover save idea. Especially if my tanks still come standard with them. Right now I only use them on the last turn to help keep my vehicles as scoring units, and even then I'd rather be shooting

And there came a great voice
Out the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying: It is done."
