Fluff says that the deathguard prefer infantry yet it also says that they like to have the best kit like terminator armour.
Don't vehicles come under 'the best kit'?
I say this because the fluff contradics itself lots of times like this. For instance, they don't like vehicles but they want the best kit and dreadnoughts?

EXPLAIN PLEASE!:read:

Fluff says that their vehicles were taken over by Nurglings. Would you be so heartless and tell the little abominations that they can't play because you want your Rhino back? :p

Seriously though, it's not that contradictory. Just assume that for the Death Guard "best kit" doesn't include vehicles.

when it says best kit you should take it as the best kit infantry can take, which would include terminator armor, and dreads are an exception, as they are interned space marines, not just a tank, and they move just like infantry do anyway with two legs

Remember what the deth guard specialities were.

Space hulks no tanks viable.

Silent dawn raids, tanks not a good idea here.

Poisonous toxic environments, potentially bad for tank maintainence

Its not like they never had any, but for their main roles they simply were not needed.
