[16:20] <@Kaiser-> Sometimes it's intentional.

I am almost sure that heavy weapons that are being carried by a Space Marine or something similar in terminator armour can fire out of a moving vehicle as they are normally able to fire heavy weapons even when they have moved. Of course you have to make sure that the ones in terminator armour can actually use that type of transport in the first place.
For others, the rules apply as the previous answer.
Note that the only imperial vehicle from which terminators can fire is the daemonhunter chimera. Rhinos and razorbacks can't transport terminators, land raiders have no fire points. Additionally a DH character with termie armour and psycannon is the only terminator with a heavy weapon which can ever be transported in a chimera.
if you were to put a SM heavy weapon squad in a rhino, you could shoot even if the transport moves.
It does not count as moving the individual soldiers because they did not move themselves. If it counted as moving, why would they be able to move their full distance after exiting the vehicle?
but theyre not allowed full movement after exiting the vehicle in the trial ass rules, right?
Actually, it's *literally* mentioned in that grey box on page 82 of the rulebook that passengers of a transport vehicle count as moving if the vehicle moved.
Models may *not* move the full distance after disembarking from a moving vehicle. Rulebook page 81.
Brain, you couldn't be more wrong. The models inside a transport counts as moving if the transport moves, be it for movement or firing purposes.
PS it's Arrogance, not errogance.
Ze titles yez...
