Stuart Harrison

He’s creating a distinction that doesn’t exist in the rules.

Also “Close quarters does not specifically say whether or not to use that rule.” is the wrong burden of proof.

Rolling to damage in close quarters is the same as rolling to damage vs shooting (p79, Close Quarters, Fight First Round of Close Quarters, Attackers Roll to Damage, third sentence “Roll to inflict damage in the same way as for shooting…”. Vehicles follow the same rules as for infantry, with the exception of things explicitly stated in the vehicle rules (p99, Vehicles, second para of the introduction), so he would need to find a part of the vehicle rules saying that specific rule DOESN’T apply to close quarters damage rolls vs vehicles.
