Default AM Hydra firing at ground troops

The Hydra has Skyfire, which is nice but what if there are no flyers? Someone told me since it doesn't have interceptor that it snap shoots at ground troops...can someone clarify this?

Thanks!

Skyfire allows you to shoot at full BS at Fliers, Skimmers and FMCs. But everything else is snapshots.

Interceptor + Skyfire no longer allows you to fire at your normal BS when firing at any target since the start of 7th edition. So if you have both, you're still fire snap shots at ground targets.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Unless you face a lot of Fliers/FMCs. Then maybe two.

I bought three, only opened one box and got it magnetized to be both the hydra and the wyvern...how are the wyverns? Do I need to return the other two?

I've seen Wyverns in a lot of lists, though I don't own one they look very nice on paper.

From what I have seen, Wyverns are quite accurate, being twin linked and because of that and Shred, will force a lot of wounds.

I would recommend to return the others, just because you already have it magnetized, where you can swap it out and play as the wyvern for a few games to see if it is worth buying a second for.

I don't really care for one myself but then again I play platoon guard, so I have lots of mortars and stuffs.
