Default Scout/Vehicle Clarification

If a Unit with the Scout rule is deployed inside a vehicle that is not a dedicated transport (Land Raider or StormRaven for ex), can that unit still Scout? My thought was no, as it only mentions Dedicated Transports in the Scout Rule entry in the BRB. Clarification?

No. You answered your own question by saying only dedicated transports can scout.

Fair enough, the rule book is pretty clear, hardly needs an FAQ.

Nerfs the " 'Raven Swoop " tactic.

Hmm. Blood Angel Scouts in a Land Raider. Hmm. Might just have to get Scouts now. Never saw the point with my other Troop choices. But a cheap 5 guys letting a Crusader Scout move ...

Scouts don't get a Land Raider as a Dedicated Transport in BA surely?

All Land Raiders in the Blood Angel codex are Dedicated Transports. But I did just look at the codex and Scouts cannot take any transport. Bubble burst I guess. I'll look up rules and FAQs regarding them taking over another units transport during deployment tomorrow. I need some sleep.

Yeh, can't do that says quite specifically that a DT can only contain the unit to which it is dedicated or be empty in reserve.
