I assume they shoot the next turn after they have disembarked right.Originally posted by panzerjeager@Sep 12 2003, 13:48
I have seen them drop off a squad of devastators in key firing positions, then add to their power with whatever wepons are attached. Imagine a squad of devastators with 4 lascannons (or heavy bltrs) + 1 twin-linked lascannon all with ballistic skill 4 ( or the twin heavy bltrs on top which would add 12 heavy bltr shots plus 3 twin linked shots), ouch to any tanks or 'nids nearby. They also make excellant HQ transports when a Land Raider is not avaliable. On at least one occasion I have seen a scout squad pop-out with 4 sniper rifles and one heavy bolter (or auto-cannon). I have seen the lascannon or heavy bolter type employed effectively against Chaos Marines effectively as well.
