Wrong. A Titan-fired Warp Missile needs a 3+ to hit anything that isn't
a Titan; if you give Squat Chassis vehicles a template they should
probably be hit automatically as well. (One down side to that....)

OTOH, if you're used to seeing Deathstrikes, then those *do* hit any
target automatically, assuming they get there.

If you want me to quote rulebook pages at you, I'll do it later when
I've got the book handy, but odds are anyone else could do so as well.

> This will kill a SHV and MAY kill a titan...

Correct, though taking the highest of two damage rolls certianly helps
in eliminating Titans.
