Default Land Raider Deep Strike

Hey, this might be answered with a simple read of the codex, but i dont have it on me
when a land raider deep strikes, how far does it count as moving if a unit assaults it? do you go off how far it scatters or something? or is it always cruising speed because it just crashed into the ground?

Cruising speed.
Just like any other vehicle that deep strikes.

Not really.
I find the ability to be extremely pointless.

You cant assault after deep striking, and it is EXTREMELY prone to mishaps due to its size.

A Drop Pod does the EXACT same job, is a LOT more reliable, and is a LOT cheaper.

The only real use for it I can see is dropping a Redeemer right next to a squad, and scorching it (using POTMS); but even then it's a bit of a waste of points.

True... but it isn't the effectiveness that I was talking about... It was more of the fact that we can (as BA) drop a giant tank in the middle of the battlefield just because we want to haha
