I would say they can, as broadsides with A.S.S can fire their railguns while falling back.

Yes they can fire any of their weapons when they deepstrike, have you ever tried Deep Striking and then fragging a tank with Twin-Linked Melta's or Multi-Melta's? It definitely makes Deep Strike more of an attractive option! ;D

You can't assault with a deep strike action (some special exceptions notwithstanding)

If you couldn't fire the big guns, then DS would be very very lame for most units capable of it.

I think the rule is that they count as moving, correct? And Obliterators can move and shoot (slow and purposeful)...I don't have a codex on me at the moment but I think that's it.

They can shoot if they move like going through difficult terrain so actually shouldn't they die for landing in difficult terrain?

Anything that lands in difficult terrain with deepstrike dies (unless stated)

Wasn't it if deep-striking units land on "impassable" terrain that they are destroyed? But if they land in difficult terrain they only take a dangerous terrain test?
