If you attach The Good Doktor Grotsnik to a unit of tankbustas do they chase the closest vee or the closest enemy unit?
Damn you! You just broke the game!
They advance to the closest enemy, but must shoot the nearest tank.
In other words, just don't do it.

Actually, distance doesn't matter for tankbustas. They can shoot/assault any vehicle they can see, regardless of how far they are away from it. The key is, if they can see a vehicle, then they can't attack anything besides a vehicle.
As for the Mad Dok attaching to tankbustas, the answer's a bit complicated:
The tankbustas rule has no effect in the movement phase, so Mad Dok's rule takes effect, and so the unit must move towards the nearest enemy.
In the shooting phase, you're restricted to shooting at vehicles only, if you can see them. Mad Dok's rules don't keep you from doing so UNLESS it would keep him from assaulting. Assuming the tankbustas can see a vehicle (as there wouldn't be a rule problem otherwise), the unit can't choose to assault a non-vehicle, so they are free to shoot at a vehicle. However, if they can assault a vehicle in the assault phase, then they must shoot at THAT vehicle, so they can later assault it, since Mad Dok's rule states that you must assault with him if possible.
Now, in the assault phase, regardless of how close the nearest enemy is, you can only assault it if it's a vehicle (again, assuming that there is a vehicle in sight). The Mad Dok's rule states that he must assault IF POSSIBLE. Since he's attached to tankbustas, it isn't possible. This means that the Mad Doc might actually stop and hover 1in away from an enemy unit for the entire game, but be unable to assault them because of the tankbustas. Regardless, he can't move towards anything besides the closest unit.
WHEW! Okay, to sum up (once more, assuming there's at least one vehicle in sight):
1. Movement phase= the unit moves towards the nearest enemy unit, regardless if it's a vehicle or not.
2. Shooting phase= if there's a vehicle within assault range, then the unit must shoot at that vehicle. Otherwise, they're free to shoot at any vehicle they can see, since it won't be keeping the Mad Dok from assaulting.
3. Assault phase= if there is a vehicle within assault range, then they must assault it. If there isn't a vehicle within assault range, then they can do nothing. The unit cannot assault a non-vehicle unit unless there are no vehicles within sight.

hmmmm...something to ponder.
