If it does not take the damage, it does not crit . . . long conversation about this, but this might be a edge case.

I found in Sarna.net that there is an AC/20 version of Karnov. Does anyone have the stats of this version?

Just don't understand why it is a Fusion driven version. In the old rules VTOLs were very fragile (one rotor hit = rip) but today they are the best fast combat vehicles.

Anyway, the best use for an vtol is still as a LRM carrier. You can avoid most of the terrain interference on the LOS or even hide behind hills for indirect fire with advantage that you always move quickly do another spot if needed

Its a fusion engine b/c you need that to keep the speed up and fit in the AC/20.
