Am i understanding this rule correctly?

If a FMC gets hit (with anything, which includes markerlights right?) while swooping, it must take a grounding test.
Ok, so this is where my friend started confusing me, is it just one dice for ALL the hits? or is it one test PER hit? from what i thought it was for ALL of the hits...
also another thing that came up, can this only ever occur once in a shooting phase? (eg. like a LD test for morale)...or is it everytime a new unit hits it? so lets say a venom hits a DP and it takes a test, and passes....then another venom hits it....does he take another test for the second venom hit?

Cheers

It's one grounding test per unit that hits.

ahhh perfect! cool thanks for that reply! Very Happy

Okay then another thing! Do FMC still have to take grounding tests when they get vector striked?

I merged this post with your next; try not to doublepost in the future.

yes, any type of hit causes a grounding test

Actually, only shooting attacks.

Quote :
If a Flying Monstrous Creature that is Swooping suffers one or more hits from a unit's Shooting attack, it must take a Grounded test immediately after that Shooting attack has been resolved.

So in that case, they wouldn't need to take one...right?

Correct.

Vector striking is neither a close combat nor a shooting attack. it's an attack in the movement phase. As such, it wouldn't trigger the Grounded Test which only triggers via Shooting Attacks.
