Default Vendetta sponsons

Can the Valkrye/Vendetta still fire its Heay Bolter sponsons if the squad in the back has gotten out? or do they have their own crew?

Models disembarking from a vehicle has no effect on what weapons the vehicle can fire.

How far the vehicle moves is the main thing that effects how many weapons you can fire

The heavy bolter sponsons are fired by Valkyrie crewmembers.
As in, whether or not troops are on board, the weapons can be fired.

ok, thanks very much guys. was just asking because the las guns on the back of the chimera can only be fired by the guys in the back, and wondered if the same rules apply. thanks again.

That rule has changed too! Now, if a squad is being transported in a Chimera, 5 models from the squad may fire out of the top hatch and the lasguns have no effect now. (This means you can fire heavy and special weapons out of the top.)

So the las guns on the hull arn't there anymore, and any weapon can be fired from the top? so a heavy weapons team can fire 3 Lascannons from the hatch? thats just a plain unreasonable amount of firepower for a transport.

It has to remain stationary to fire heavy weapons though. Basically the transport is stuck moving at the same speed the infantry would have been, it just gives them a layer of protection from enemies firing back.

i have no problems going against chimeras, the majority of my Anti vehicle weapons dont even notice its armour, and its a waste of a railgun shot to kill it, missilepods and seekers are more than adequate. I was merely concerend about a mobile lascannon team, which i would have thought most people would be. as it happens, you dont get a mobile lascannon team, you get a stationary one in a flimsy bunker.
