If I had a unit of ork tank bustas on a trukk, or any vehicle for that matter, would the trukk only be able to move 6" at a time due to theglory hogs special rule?

glory hogs states that if they can see an enemy vehicle they must fire at it.

I would guess that the trukk could only move 6" to alow the unit to fire. But what if the trukk starts its turn out of sight of any enemy vehicles, but would have LOS after only a couple of inches--would it then have to stop instead of moving flatout or at crusing speed?

odd question--I know. I'm just trying to find a way to make a unit of tank bustas more effective.

The glory hogs rule says they have to shoot if they can see a vehicle. It doesn't say they control a vehicles speed that they are riding in. If a trukk full of tank busta's moves at a speed that disallows shooting from the vehicle, then the unit of tank busta's can't fire at all. You can also move a unit of tank busta's out of LOS to avoid them shooting at a target that is out of range, either on foot or embarked in a vehicle as the tank hunters rule only affects shooting and assault, not movement.
