I was reading the unit tactica and stumbled upon this entry:
10 Dark Eldar Warriors
1 Splinter Cannon
This set up allows a great versatility to be achieved with the unit as it can function as an artillery platform against those armies unlikely/unable to shoot it and can also be used as a supporting unit for assaults, being capable of dispensing a large amount of damage on the charge and having an impressive charge range (21” without fleeting). Even though this is the most expensive raider squad option it is still relatively cheap and thus relatively disposable making it a functional decoy unit where necessary.
How would you move 21" without fleeting? I understand you can move 12" and then disembark, but if you flat out and move any more, and then disembark, you can't assault...
You move the Raider 12'', then you disembark 3'' (your models base just needs to touch the 2'' radius to disembark, so the front of your models base will already be 15'' away from the starting point), then you assault 6''.
- That makes 21'' without fleet and 22''-27'' with fleeting.
- Use whyches that get the charge drugs and you re speaking of 28''-33''.
Hoelli has it right. Also, you can't disembark at all in the turn your vehicle goes Flat Out unless the passengers are forced to due to a Destroyed result.

Are you sure you can disembark 3"? I've always played it like models coming off the table edge, by measuring 2" from the hull and placing the front edge of my models there.
It's not actually a 3'' dismebark, it's technically more like a 2.99", as 3'' would but your 1'' model fully outside the 2'' radius from the hull.
actually it is a little bit less that that as the base of a unit is only ~.98 inches across so it is a little bit less. Still the tactic still stands basically.
it is a long way, not as far as terminators in a land raider on a road though (damn I hate that rule).
Dear Game Developer,Caps-Lock, its like cruise-control for AWESOMENESS!
