Default Monolith?

Can the monolith shoot the turn it deepstrikes in?

Mu reason for asking is because I was playing a friend, and if was was my first time playing against hiw new monolith. I was orks.

So the rules say a deep striking vehicles counts as moving cruising speed. And in the back of the BRB it says at cruising speed you can't fire.
Thanks for the help guys!

The codex gives the monolith a number of special rules, one of which allows it to move and use it crystal matrix. For rule questions a codex always overrides the BRB.

I don't see in the codex where it says it ignores the rule.
I could agree with the power matrix rule, but firing the guass flux arc projector? It's a shooting attack and it moved cruising speed that turn. It can't fire, correct?

THe guass flux is a shooting attack and cannot fire, but who would honestly use that over a killer pie plate?

Oh so it can only fire one or the other?
The guy I was playing with fired both.

The Necron codex is RAW. Any Monolith move, the matrix can activate. One of the Matrix options is Fire the Particle Whip. Move is anything from .1" to 6". There is NO cruising speed for Liths. SO Lith can DS and fire PW.

Particle Whip is an Ordinance weapon. Universal rules if you fire Ordinance, you can't fire anything after.
