I've read several threads where people have compared the Sky Hammer and the Typhoon Missile launchers. When looking over those discussions, no one really brought up the comparison of the two weapons against other flyers. Has anyone done the MathHammer on this? I remember from my IG days that weapons like Autocannons were good against skimmers because of the Jink-like saves they had. Does this still hold true with the Sky Hammer Missiles? I'm just curious.

Afaik it was only the Hydra that was good against skimmers in 5th Ed as it had a special rule but that was it.

Well, this is my experience, which may be from 4th and playing against Tau, Autocannon HW Squads were the best defense against Skimmers.
