Default Can any tank or jetbike unit assault

This question has been on my nerves for a while. It seems to follow me! ^-^

there's a little thing called tank shock. Get the rule book first.
But seriously, a Guardsman, I'm willing to bet, could a) outshoot me, b) give me the beating of my life, and c) shove more squad-based tactics down my throat than I'd ever care to digest. Guard are hard, hard men. Whether or not GW's inconsistent, Marine-worshipping fluff keeps with that, mkay?

Real men fight in tanks!

Certain Ork upgrades allow their vehicles to perform attacks against other vehicles, or inflict wounds on troops who don't fall back when tank shocked - if that's what you're asking.

Jetbikes (not Vypers) - yes.
Most vehicles - no.

Only certain Chaos and Ork upgrades allow tanks to literally 'assault'. Tanks (not smaller vehicles) can Tank Shock enemy infantry, but this works in a different manner.
