    Raider Gun Boat Question

    Question: Can troops on a raider fire if it moves over 6 inches?

    All I can find in the rulebook is "Models firing from a vehicle count as moving if the vehicle moves, and may not fire at all if the vehicle moved at Cruising speed that turn"

    In the fast vehicle section it doesn't say anything about troops on transports firing, from what I can see. The answer to my question seems to be that they cannot fire, since cruising speed is between 6 and 12 inches.

    The only thing that doesn't make sense to me is that DE troops in a raider can move up to 12 inches, disembark, and then shoot. But if they move 12 inches and stay on board they can't? Does this make sense?

    Any insight would be great.

    And thatís all I can find also, annoying isnít it?

    Itís probably to stop Gunboats/GunTrukks from moving around the table and changing the mechanics of the game.

    Cheers.
    In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.

    Yah, since they gave more protection to passengers in transports I think they forsaw the natural tendency to have more "drive-by" squads roaming the board.

    Well, if there is something they can do to give our army a special ability then there you go, just put it in the new dex.
