    Thunderfire in cover?

    If the cannon is inside a building (but not obscured to 50%) does it get a cover save?

    Also if so, does it get a bolstered save from the marine manning it?

    As silly as it might sound, technically yes. The TFC is an unit composed of one vehicle model and one infantry model. The vehicle may not be able to benefit from being in cover without being 50% obscured, but the techmarine can. So if at any given time the techmarine counts as having a cover save, then half the unit is in cover, and the entire squad may take a cover save.

    This is similar to the Hive Tyrant and Tyrant Guard situation where something that usually won't get cover, in this case a vehicle, receives the save because the rest of the unit is normal infantry.

    So to answer your question, as long as the techmarine can claim cover, the cannon gets it as well, and the cannon gets the same cover save the Techmarine does.

    I hadn't considered that - artillery with a 3+ cover save? Yes please

    Yep. Same as 2 Leman Russes out in the open, one pops smoke but they both get a cover save
