I managed to get a weapon penetration result on a vindicater, my opponent though swore up and down that smoke launchers counted as weapons so the die roll to destroy the main gun was a 1-2, rather then 1-3.

This makes, NO sense at all to me, because, frankly you can't kill some one with a smoke launcher nor does it have a profile, and weapon destroyed result says, one WEAPON can't be used again, but the logic seemed to be that it was a piece of wargear, and it could be used in the shooting phase.

You are right I think your opponent needs to read the rules because as you said the smoke launcher is not a weapon because it has no profile. Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure if it doesn't have a profile then it isn't a weapon.

It's a vehicel equip. By the same assumption you could destroy extra armour or dozer blade...hit him with a pewter landraider

Wargear, not weapon, like everyone else has said.

sounds like he was trying to make sure his main gun didnt take the hit so he spammed some bull to save it. i agree hit him with a tank, if one of those is not handy use a hammer, if you dont have one of those i will mail you one i have plenty to spare

Most people who want the main gun not to blow up, suck it up and pay the 5pts for a combi-bolter or 10 for a combi-plasma/flamer/melta to give it a bit of protection.
At least it isn't like in the old old days where the owning player got to pick which weapon went boom (I think I will pick that weapon that sucks on the other side of the tank what is useless rather than the large cannon of superdeath!).
