Hey gang, if a vehicle moves at cruising speed, can an embarked model with a heavy weapon (like a Splinter Cannon, for example) still fire?

Haven't noticed anything in my little rulebook restricting heavy weapons from firing after a transport moves at cruising.

Up to 6 inches the splinter cannon can choose between assault or heavy mode I believe 6-12 inches I think it has to fire heavy and they are snap shots.. I may be wrong though as it is well past midnight and I am tired and not referencing any material Smile

At cruising speed all passengers have to fire snap shots, heavy weapon or otherwise. So a Splinter Cannon can either fire 4 snap shots or 6. I think the answer is obvious.

Tri has it right, but its 4 shots at full BS or 6 at snapfire., but close enough Very Happy

At combat speed you're right. At cruising speed it is snap shots for everyone.

so, to make sure that i have been doing this right and not cheating my opponents with better BS then i should have had

combat speed(6" move) = BS4 if firing assault, if firing heavy this snapshots

cruising speed(12" move) = snapshots all the time

this is what i have been doing, my true born have loved doing this from a venom so i hope it is right

Cruising speed is 6 shots at snap shot though right?

You could choose to shoot assault 4 at snapshot, but... why you would I don't know.

So yes the splinter cannon can fire heavy 6 snapshot at cruising speed.

At combat speed you have the option of 4 accurate shots at full BS using assault setting or 6 snapshots at heavy setting.
