Wait...

He has a speed freek army, but like to take Ork boyz?

Speed freek armies can't have regular mobs of boyz- everything has to be mounted in a vehicle.

Unless you mean Evil Sunz, which don't.

Speed freaks can have trukk boyz, those are kinda like regular boyz except they only get wounded on a 6 when their vehicle gets killed. I say just stick to massed pulse rifle and burst cannons. They can not only shoot apart boyz, but also work on most Ork vehecles, except battle wagons and looted stuff. Or you could go vehecular rail head seeing as how the sub will destroy 'ard boyz, and it'll make shure even looted vehecles go down fast.

Ion cannons are really good against ork vehicles as they arent very tough getting 3 shots at them makes sure somethings blows up. If you dont take this, some crisis with misslepods should be even deadlier but im guessing not as tough. other than that pulse rifles should do the trick against your average ork. You might want to give your shas'o firelance configuration(plasma rifle, fusion blaster) since ork warbosses often have mega armour. and an ork with 2+ save is something you dont want to mess with. What i did once though was have the minimum required army and then the rest of the points on kroot, they shoot way better than orks fight slightly worse than them. (both wound on 4s hit on 4s orks get one more attack kroot get higher iniative and kroot hit on 4s)

Railgun. The Railgun could, one, lay waste to any looted Leman Russes, and two, kill like 8 Orks from the Submunition. The Pulse Rifle can kill lots of Orks, but the Railgun is the one gun that can take out lots of Orks in a single shot.

yeah but it costs you a bundle, the railgun is the best weapon no doubt but its also the most expensive, in this situation i don't think its the most cost effective.

Although, everyone knows that weapon collaboration wins the day. Pulse Rifles, Burst Cannons, and Railgun Submunitions concentrating on the Ork mobs will destroy a mob a turn. More mobs will be destroyed, or at least entangled, by Missile Poding the transports. All weapons used together is the best Ork masher, but the Railgun is the most versatile.

I don't think its worth the points if all you are going to do is submunition, in that cased i'd just spend the money on some kroot.

Again, the Orks can loot tanks, so a Leman Russ could be there, ready to be blown to bits by a Railgun. Once dead, it has another job to do, unlike the Pulse Rifle. Besides, the Hammerhead is MUCH more survivable than the Pulse Rifle and will often survive for many turns.
