PostSubject: Units shooting from Open Top Vehicles   Sun Nov 08, 2009 5:06 am

The 40K rule book does not state if units travelling in an open topped transport can shoot if it moves at cruising speed? It states a unit can disembark and assualt regardless of the vehicles movement but not if the unit can shoot? Should I assume the normal vehicle rules of firing defensive weapons and 1 main at combat speed and nothing at cruising or can the vehicle move at cruising speed and still allow the passengers their full firing capacity?

...not sure??

I ask as Im considering using a Trukk for my Tankbustas and have that crusing towards enemy vehicles as Tankbustas must travel towards the nearest enemy tank. Tankbustas fire rokkits which count as assault weapons

Any views??

Think that you can shoot from the vehicle as long as you don't go faster than cruising speed. Obviously you still can't fire any Heavy weapons - not that you have many (if any at all).

My first heavy support choice is now in the army. I have my looted wagon all built which I'll show you tomorrow, its not painted yet but I think it looks pretty cool. Heavy choices are now the next thing on my agenda. I have 2100pts now!

Cheers for the reply
