Default Deployment of fished pathfinders

I was just wondering, what are the rules for deploying (and scoutmoving) pathfinders IN their devilfish?

The way I see it, there are 3 options:

1. The pathfinders gives the scout ability to their devilfish, so both may scoutmove - that means your devilfish moves up to 12", your pathfinders disembark and move up to 6".

2. The pathfinders gives the scout ability to their devilfish, but since they are deployed IN the devilfish, they lose it themselves - that means your devilfish moves up to 12", your pathfinders disembark, but may not move.

3. The pathfinders gives the scout ability to their devilfish, but since they are deployed IN the devilfish, they lose it themselves - that means your devilfish moves up to 12", but since your pathfinders no longer have the scout ability, as they themselves are not on the table, they cannot disembark during scoutmove phase.

Could anyone enlighten me as to how the scout move works, when pathfinders are deployed in devilfishes please ?

Cheers,
Anders

Scout follows normal rules.
So if you disembark from a moving vehicle, you can't move any further; making option 2 correct.

Thank you - I took it up with some of my friends (who unlike me are 40k "vets"), but they weren't really sure either.

You can do a scout move, then fish forward 12" before dropping the PFs can't you?

As far as I know, you can never embark and disembark in the same turn. Furthermore, the pathfinders must be deployed in their devilfish in order to confer the scout-ability to the devilfish.
So, I guess the most move you can get with your pathfinders is deploying IN the devilfish, flying 12" then disembarking, with no further movement of neither pathfinders nor devilfish.

Ah, thought you meant first move pathfinders into the fish, then embark, fly 12" and disembark again.
