Everything that uses an Assault Cannon can fire after moving, allowing them to hit things that were 30" away - difficult terrain tests aside. Also it's often the case that to hit something and because of terrain there isn't more than a 30" fire lane to the target. Also Terminator and Tornadoes can DS, and Dreadnoughts can appear by drop pod.

I'd say yes they still benefit from that extra range, but not majorly so.

Heresy grows from idleness.
