Baal Predator and assault cannon

Post by Raide » Sun Mar 13, 2011 3:34 pm

Can the baal predator use it's assault cannon if it has moved at cruising speed?

Fast vehicles say they can fire one weapon at cruising speed plus all defensive ones

but heavy weapons say they can't be fired if u moved..

help plz? :(

The only limitations on amount of weapons a vehicle can fire, aside from speed, is ordinance weaponry. With regards to heavy/rapidfire, I guess they are assumed to be stable enough platforms to always allow them to be fired.
The Rule Monkey is always right. Always.

it doesnt matter if its a heavy weapon when its on a vehicle, so yes it can fire it

as far as i'm aware, only infantry cannot fire heavy weapons if they moved

idk what page it is on, but it is in the vehicles section for sure, most likley under vehicles shooting.

But yes, vehicles can fire off all their weapons, as long as its not ordinance, regardless of it being heavy or not, provided it did not move at all. Moving at 6" allows 1 weapon to be fired, and moving a full 12" you cannot fire anything (unless its fast or has power of the machine spirit).

If he stopped you from firing the weapon becasue of this, i would call the loss null, as he seriously cheated his way into that win. Ill attempt to find the page once i get home and take a look at my RB

It is a fast vehicle. Read the codex. A baal that cant shoot and move would be useless.
I have a high threshold for other peoples pain.

Sorry for the delay on the page of the rule book, but with the help of a friend weve located it.

Its on page 58 of the RB, in the 3rd paragraph. It tells that heavy and rapid fire weapons fired from a vehicle always count as not moving.

Hope this helps in future games :twisted:
