As far as I can tell, the Machine Spirit (newly included in our FAQ) allows for a vehicle to always 1 more weapon than it is allowed to normally.
Can anyone convince me that my Land Raider, which moves 12", fires it's Smoke Launchers, and then fires a single Lascannon at an enemy tank, is making an illegal maneauver?

It's not illegal, but it does have a "dodgy" feel to it. Perhaps this is just old habits that die hard, however, as the rules verbiage is relatively clear and unambiguous. FWIW, the FAQ that GW is currently using in the UK GTs explicitly allows exactly this maneuver to occur. But you do have to have the "new" PotMS rules to do so! So only us GKs and codex Marines get the benefit.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

I suppose it depends how you read it; both the BBB and the entry in our codex say, pretty explicitly, that you can't fire any other weapon when using smoke launchers. It doesn't say "may not fire any other weapon even if allowed to by a special rule" though, and thus you can assume PotMS allows it to happen. It's not something I'd do because the arguments it'd create probably wouldn't be worth the hassle, but if you really need the lascannon shot it wouldn't be illegal; just make sure and have a print-out to point to when your opponent complains >_<
Well, shaken and stunned don't have a clause that allow special abilities to override them either, and I don't think anyone would argue that a shaken potms can't fire.
