Default Transport Question

Okay, my brain seems to have stopped working.

What is the maximum speed a transport vehicle can move and stiil embark/disembark troops?

And a page reference please if possible.

Many thanks

(A brain dead) Andrew

Unless it has some special rule, the maximum is 12". Anything over that would be Flat Out, normally only allowed to Fast vehicles) and that would mean nobody can embark/disembark. Reference: BRB, page 70, bottom right.

So in other words a looted LR could move 12", +1" Red paintjob, +6" road, +2" disembark and +6" assault for 27" assault range?!!!!!!

Cheers

Andrew
PS I didn't think to look under fast vehicles, I was fixated on the transport rules.

Does the Looted Land Raider still allow assaults after disembarkation when moving? If so, then you are correct. An open topped vehicle, such as the Battlewagon, surely does allow that.

It does, it retains "Assault Vehicle" but loses "Power of the Machine Spirit" unless they changed that rule as the vehicle is designed to be assaulted out of...but if the orks don't disable the machine spirit the vehicle starts shooting them for not being "Human"

I though roads didn't add an extra 6" to how far your move but made it so they don't count 6 inches of the vehicles movement.

So you move a rhino 12" on a road it would only have counted as 6".

EDIT!!!

never mind after reading the rule book cause I wasn't sure they can add an extra 6" to their movement.

Yeah, but the rule specifically states it has to start and end it's movement on the road.

The only thing is that there are no more looted land raiders. The Orks only have looted vehicles now, which can be made from a land raider, but all of the rules come from the looted wagon entry in the Ork codex. There is no machine spirit, no assault vehicle, or any other vehicle's rules.
