Default Open-topped?

Trying to get the hang of the Rules, I came across the following about vehicles:
"All of the models aboard an open-topped vehicle can fire"

The heading is "Infantry firing from vehicles".
Firewarriors are infantry, and they fly the piranhas (as well as the tanks). So both piranha crew members get to shoot.

With what???
Since the models don't come with any weapons, I assume they carry [invisible?] pulse pistols, which come with a certain amount of dakka.

IF this reasoning hold, I can fire 1 main weapon, 4 drone carbines, and 2 pistols in one go.
Not too much of an improvement, but every shot is a gift (what's your name again?)

Comments/corrections?

The passage you're reffering to applies to infantry being transported by a vehichle.

The firewarriors flying the pirhana are crewmen, so they may not shoot other weapons, since they're spending their time operating their craft.

...and of course there was an easy way to bring that idea down in flames
No worries, I'll find another loophole somewhere..!

Problem sorted.

And don't go looking for loopholes... playing unsportingly leads to bad things, being laughed out of your store for gross stupidity amongst them (seen it happen...).

LOCKED.
