Default Shooting from super heavies/gargantuan creatures?

Hi all can you possibly help me with a rules query about models with heavy weapons being able to fire from said models while moving i.e lootas firing from the howdah of a gargantuan squiggoth when it moves?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I am pretty sure that they can, but I would get a more rulesy person to confirm that

Sadly, if the Super-Heavy moves so does the squad inside. The only thing that changes in the Super-Heavy/ Gargantuan rules is that even if it moves the transport can fire all of its own weapons (at different targets if it wants).

No where does it change that if the transport moves then the squad inside counts as having moved. Since the transported unit's weapons in question are heavy weapons, they will not be able to fire that turn.
