Ye i just added that if you look at orks they can teleport their whole armies from planets and ships. So i dont see how Elite forces of Adeptus Astrates cant do it.
I don't think there's "high pressure" going on. It's basically a quick trip through the warp with a bubble of reality surrounding you. Regular humans can be teleported.I read on warhammer wiki that because TDA is so strong that it can withstand high pressures of warp teleportation, so maybe normal PA is not strong enough to not crush under pressure? Now that raises a question why land raiders are not being teleported but dropshiped by a thunderhawk...
Yet they have in the fluff several times.I don't think there's "high pressure" going on. It's basically a quick trip through the warp with a bubble of reality surrounding you. Regular humans can be teleported.
I'm guessing Land Raiders just eat too much juice to teleport. We've seen times where they've had to recharge the teleporters. Or there wasn't enough power to get a second wave.
The closest thing I can put a finger on is that energy expenditure seems to be related to either the quantity of people sent or the mass of the objects sent.I won't state for a fact that one doesn't exist.
Actually according to historical sources, (look it up yourselves) Swimming in armour is possible. It's only for movies that you are dead if you fall in water while wearing armour.
I don't have the link on me ATM. Looking for it.Reaper can you link a source I can read into that please?
So I guess a super soldier wearing power armour wouldn't have any problems then would they?
The problem is them floating. Wearing the power armor is like wearing a car and cars usually don't float, I know go-carts certainly as hell don't .. Metal tends to be less buoyant than other materials, i.e. wood, fat, air, etcSo I guess a super soldier wearing power armour wouldn't have any problems then would they?
I can tell you got that first part directly from age of empires.The problem is them floating. Wearing the power armor is like wearing a car and cars usually don't float, I know go-carts certainly as hell don't .. Metal tends to be less buoyant than other materials, i.e. wood, fat, air, etc
Try dropping a piece of metal and a piece of wood into water.
That being said I imagine plague marines would have a far easier time floating than a normal marine do to all the built up gas.
There's some old stories, don't remember if true, about people in heavy armor drowning.
A: One of the crusader kings drowned after finally finding water, he jumped into the ocean without taking his armor off and drowned before his soldiers could reach him.
B: Roman marines during the early years tended to have a extremely high mortality rate, compared to other marines, do to them wearing standard armor, till some CO came up with the brilliant idea of giving their marines a stripped down version.
EDIT: I would imagine a space marine could swim in scout armor like it was normal clothes, but that's been established.
EDIT2: Found Story A
On 10 June 1190, Emperor Frederick drowned in the Saleph river. He had decided to walk his horse through the river instead of crossing the bridge that had been too crowded with troops. The current was too strong for the horse to handle, and his suit armour was too heavy for him to swim in: both were swept away and drowned. Some historians believe he may have had a heart attack that complicated matters. Some of Frederick's men put him in a barrel of vinegar to preserve his body.
Your half right I heard it first on AoE2 and found it on wikipedia.stuff
