Can embarked squads shoot out of a transport, if the transport is in combat? The rules go to the trouble of pointing out embarked units can't Overwatch as they aren't being charged. That means embarked units don't count as being in combat and should be ok to keep firing.

Edit - the original transport teaser before 8th launched specifically says embarked troops can fire pistols into an enemy if the transport is engaged. But they can't fight, can't fire overwatch etc which would imply the units inside are not engaged....

The Open Topped rules make it clear:

"any retrictions or modifiers that apply to this models also apply to its passengers; for example, the passengers cannot shoot if this model has Fallen Back in the same turn, cannot shoot (except with Pistols) if this model is within 1" of an enemy unit.....etc."

When you fire out of an Open Topped Transport, you count the fire as coming from the Vehicle itself, and apply any modifiers and restrictions of the Vehicle to the passenger fire.

Missed that bit. Note to self - read rulebook carefully before asking silly questions.

I wouldn't worry. I've been guilty of terribly misreading and missing lines in the past too.

Does this also mean that Dark Lances of units embarked get the -1 on hits heavy weapon penalty if the transport has moved?

Ok, one more.

It says any restrictions or modifiers also count for the embarked unit. What if a raider, which has FLY, has fallen back? The restriction that it can not fire does not count for units with FLY. Therefore it does also not count for the embarked unit???

Is this correct?

That is specifically addressed in the open-topped rule so I would suggest familiarising yourself with it as it's fairly important for us.

Thanks! How could I miss this.

Looks like I need to read the rules and descriptions a lot more carefully.
