Given that anything but a Titan that a Drop Pod lands on is destroyed,
I'd have to say yes.

Nope. What kills the unit below is the breaking thrusters... they burn
right through 'em.

Everything, friendly as well as enemy. People don't usually drop these
at the same time as the rest of their pods....

Stick. Bounces are disregarded, it is only the final resting place of
the counter for the pod that matters. For Titans, I think anything that
lands on the base is considered to hit the Titan.
