Your civilian road car is more durable than a killer kan.

 

I would go with Front 12 Sides 10 Rear 12 (baggage compartment!). Structural Integrity around 8.

 

And 3 AP for the windshield.

I actually didn't any account for any armour on the windshield, hence the open topped rule.
I think I will change the armour to 14/10/10 with a Structural Integrity of 12, otherwise it would have less than a bike.

A Killa Kan still has more Structural Integrity. :)

 

14 is a bit much for the front I think. Well, the engine block is there I guess, hmmm.

In the Dark Heresy Beta the Hectin Ground Car has armour 15/10/8.  They also have the Chimera in the Beta, with the same armour values as in Only War.

 

No hit points in the Dark Heresy Beta so that won't help.

Why not delete all armour for civilian vehicles? Despite what Hollywood would have you believe, a car provides very little protection against bullets. Or if you really think some metal (or WH alternative) is better than none, just add a few (for example 1-4) points.

 

That way, civilian vehicles are indeed what civilian vehicles are meant to be; cheap transportation for civilians under civilized conditions. And if insurgents or desperate soldiers use civilian vehicles, adding armour plates would be the way to go....

 

Note that rugged vehicles for hazardous environments (thinking dangerous wildlife here) would likely have some armour.

And if colonists live in areas with dangerous xenos presence, they likely have cast off military vehicles or such.

Well if it has to go through the engine block...

 

Also this would make cars vulnerable to knives and claws and teeth. Not big claws and teeth, mind you. Dogs.
