If a jeep is hit, its going to go pop generally. Free the points up.

At the top of page 86 in the BRB Soft-skinned targets are destroyed outright if any hit results in damage. So yes its a 6+ to pop it, but it seems to be a lot of points in something that fragile.

For my lists I go with Quantity over quality, as its more rifles/shots, but if you play them with the high Morale you don't have to leave the model on the sidelines if it doesn't work for you. Like me lovely Panther!
