I don't like the "Open topped vehicles don't count as open topped anymore when crewed by Marines" rule.

Im aware of that.

But the way he did so showed points that are very relevant to the "I might/might not see the tank coming at me" arguement that support the opposing view of "I might not see the tank comming at me."

Tanks shock rules are crap, the fact u could possible avoid a tank knowing it was driving at you is besides the point. Maybe a mechanic in place that made it likely that a model would get away would therefore make more sense. However that doesn't mean tank shock rules are good as they stand.

What I'm trying to get across, seemingly spectacularly unsuccessfully, is that the current Tank Shock rules are the best combination of simplicity and realism I have yet to see, out of all its suggested modifications and outright replacements.

And Twisted, I agree. It seems somewhat... odd... that wearing enourmously protective armour somehow makes what you're riding in tougher than usual.
