Ok, so a vehicle in a squad of Vypers can be wrecked with an Immobilized result. (Roll of a 3 for a normal Penetrating hit)

Vectored Engines say that they would allow a vehicle to land normally instead of crashing and being considered Wrecked due to an Immobilized result. (No mention of Flat Out is made)

The "Fluff" reasons behind the squadron rules would say that Vectored Engines don't matter in this case, but by the actual rules of the Gear it would seem that the Vyper may actually survive.


The only problem is that since if one member of squad moves, they all count as moving. Therefore, the entire squad would be effectively Immobilized until the damaged member was completely Wrecked. However, this could provide a tad bit more survivability to a super fragile squad, expensive as it may be.


What do ya think?

The Vectored engines only allow a vehicle that would be destroyed by the immobilized result to be saved, i.e. it was going flat out. Squadrons would not be saved, as landing is immaterial here. The squadron rules say the vehicle is abandoned and considered destroyed. "Treat all immobilized results as destroyed (wrecked)" pg. 64. MRB. Essentially, they replace the Immobilized result with Destroyed (wrecked). Vectored engines don't matter, as technically, squadrons have this table:

1) Shaken
2) Shaken
3) Weapon Destroyed
4) Destroyed - Wrecked
5) Destroyed - Wrecked
6) Destroyed - Explodes!

There is no mention of being destroyed in the vectored engines rules. It says the vehicle does not crash but makes a forced landing instead. It is still immobilised and would count as Destroyed if in a squadron.
