Default Monolith Deepstriking + Particle Whip

Can the Monolith deepstrike and then use it's particle whip? Deepstriking units count as moving at cruising speed, thus normally preventing you from firing ordinance weapons. The Monolith says it can move and fire, but the intent of that seems to signify normal movement.

The monolith can fire the particle whip when deepstriking as per the always allwed when moving rule though it slightly odd. Remember the codex is outdated by alot so there are alot of oddities.

Also, the Particle Whip is a form of the Power Matrix but is treated as an Ordinance weapon. The Power Matrix can be used after a deep strike, thus the PW can be used.
There are no stupid questions, just stupid people asking questions.
