Hell yeah thats true- was playing against a couple of them in a legendary battle... my comic ogre deathstar unit walked right up in front of them then had 30 shots (no misfire) from the first one kill an entire rank of ogres (15+ wounds)... then had the second roll 10 shots (yes, that was 4*10 on the trot) then misfire... ... it missed with all 10 shots and then blew up1). It is for the Empire a cheap and effective fear unit. When it fires off spectacularly it decimates the enemy line especially if you get it right. This alone for anyone who has faced one almost gives it double its value in points. It can be a great flank denial weapon, you stick it out on the flank and you will find unless your opponent has something to deal with warmachine specific targets they will be rather sheepish when it comes to moving within range of the thing.
