Hi Peter,

This needs to be better explained in the rules. Under the Close Combat
Section, Vehicles in Close Combat, nothing is stated about infantry on
Advance orders being able to exit the vehicle, when the vehicle is
charged. It does state, however, that charged vehicles may fire thier
bolters (regardless of orders), and that troops with Charge Orders may
exit the vehicle, if the vehicle has not moved.

This same question has been asked in the group I play with. Perhaps
this is another issue to discuss?
