Someone said that Rending Hits on Vehicles do NOT get the +1 bonus due to being AP2.

Can anyone see why? Or why not?

Yup, first question on page 6

Vonny's right. Rending is not considered AP2 vs vehicles.

Which at the time made me wonder what is the point of it and how did they forget that aspect of the rule when they put it in the rules. At the time it seemed clear, anything AP2 you get +1 to vehicle damage, rending makes you AP2... what's confusing about that? Its not like it's even ambiguous in the book so who suddenly went:

'hold on, does the fact rending makes it AP2 mean you get the +1 modifier to vehicle damage?'
GW: 'Young man you are completely wrong, of course you get +1 on the Vehicle damage chart when you are AP2 except when rending at AP2, did we not put that in the book?'

Mechanically I think it works like this:

When you roll a 6 to wound, you wound regardless of toughness and get ap2. Since you don't roll to wound vehicles, this doesn't apply. Instead you get +D3 armour pen if you roll a 6.

Think of it as two seperate rules granted by having 'rending', and it makes more sense.
