Well firstly you dont tend to assault against orks... well ok, you do, but yu dont cross the battlefield in a transport to do it, you blast them to pieces then charge when they get close (at least in theory).
Against every army other then orks my SW tactics were to drive 3 rhinos accross the field about 6" apart, stop ~11" away form the enemy, spin round and blow smoke. The enemy can then either assault me (but not be able to block my side doors), shoot my AV10 rear armour with its 4+ smoke (and the only bad things that can happen are a stunned or a explodes with me being pinned) or retreat... if they retreat I just drive right up close and jump all my guys out and flame/shoot (old codex, couldnt do that with new codex unless an IC was in there).
30 BCs all being able to charge out of rhinos was pretty devastating, and its supprising how many people didnt bother to move the 3-4" back to escape the charge... ofc the few who did were then faced by 30 guys in power armour to kill before they could get into combat (at 14pts/model and with 3+ saves blood claws were totally evil when used on mass).
