Welcome to Librarium Online!
If I markerlight a transport with a squad inside it multiple times, If I destroy the vehicle can I use the markerlight hits to lower the Ld of the unit inside for their pinning test?
It would be silly I know because you have to declare the Ld negatives when you shoot at it, and just hope that you get a vehicle destroyed result, but would it still work?
Just to give a page number or two to show where it says that [dedicated] transports and their cargo are separate units, check out
P.92 BRB last line of "Multiple Unit Choices"
P.67 BRB second paragraph of "Destroyed - explodes!", and
P.60 BRB under "Shooting at Vehicles", lines 3-4.
Even if you had a Pathfinder Shas'ui with a Hard-wired Target Lock, he would still not be able to fire at the transported unit as all shooting is considered to be done simultaneously and therefore he would have had to determine his [alternative] target before the unit opened fire as a whole.
