Default Hellhounds inferno cannon?

Okay when you fire the Inferno cannon do you use the flamer template and can you orient it any way you want to make the maximum use of it?

As i know it you use the flame template, place in on the unit you wish to fire upon, and the template is aimed in the same direction as the barrel, to try and get as many in the unit as possible.

The Hellhound Inferno Cannon can fire it's flamer template in a way that you may place it in any direction you want to, as long as it is within the weapons range. This represents that the flamer fires a torrent of burning prometheum and can direct the template in any way you want through "sweeping movements" with the cannon.

Indeed, excellant isn't it?

just a quick hi jack. Do you place the template at the end of the 24"giving it an effective range of 32"

Rulebook states that the entire template must remain within range.

Here's a good one... Can you position the template to get a rear armour shot on an enemy vehicle no matter which way it's facing? My initial thought would be yes, but I don't want to swindle people out of games. Cheap illegal tactics are for whiny powergamers, but cheap legal tactics are the OK way to go!

My thoughts are no.
And thats because your only seeing his side-armour or front armour.

Right, but theoretically you're hitting the tank from whichever direction the flame template is coming from...

I'm not saying I disagree with you per se, but I find both arguements are just as valid as one another, it doesn't bring me any closure on the subject really...

I still disagree.
The arranging the flame template is not to hit it from that direction, but to get hit as many enemies as possible. It does not say in the rules for the inferno cannon that the flames count as coming from that direction.
