Default Knarloc Riders

With Knarloc Riders, being classed as "cavalry" (I haven't played an army with cavalry before, so apologies if I sound stupid), are they allowed to fleet AND the riders shoot their kroot rifles whilst doing so?

The core rulebook sounds like this is possible for Cavalry, over Beasts.

cavalry and beasts are under the same jurisdiction.

move 6, d6, assault 12.

though that is to say, unless knarloc riders say anything different. They should be fast moving indian/horse style.

No, beasts and cavalry have the same movement and the knarloc riders only have one stat line. For all game purposes the rider and mount are one model/entity.

Also taken from IA3: "In the shooting phase you may declare that the [b][u]unit is going to run instead of shoot" so basically the choice affects everything in the unit, rider and mount alike.

Although you could still move 6", shoot, and assault 12" if the kroot rifle wasn't rapid fire.

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

A trickier question is whether Knarloc Riders receive a bonus attack for being armed with a Kroot rifle. I lean towards no - as it's the rider that's armed with the rifle, not the knarloc - but it's unclear enough that it really should be included in a FAQ.

Checking... ah, it was included in a FAQ. I was right - they don't get the extra attack.
