Default Devilfish moves and rapid fire

Hello everyone. I searched but could not find any mentioning of this little problem before. As far as I understand you are now NEVER allowed to fire after disembarking if your transport has moved further than 6". Does anyone know anything that would contradict this?

The impact on my force has been that the good 'ol FoF is almost impossible to pull off to good effect anymore

I don't know where you are reading it, but you are reading it wrong. You can fire just fine after disembarking from any vehicle.

Can a devilfish move, have a firewarrior squad disembark, fire, then re-embark onto the devilfish and have the 'fish move again all in the same turn?

no. No army has the ability to disembark and embark in the same turn.

I think...but don't quote me on this...the Dark Eldar can with some wargear since they have open top skimmer.

But as a general rule, No you cannot embark and disembark in the same round (unless your transport is destroy with troop in it).

Nope. Devilfish has no access points so firewarriors cannot shoot outside.


Everything with Front, side and rear armour are vehicule but within the Vehicule you have subcategory -tank, skimmer, walker, fast, open-top, etc. All tau vehicule are skimmers, some are (also) tanks.

I think he was asking if we can shoot under the 'fish, and the answer is yes as it is a skimmer. However the unit being shot at recieves a 4+ cover save.
