Yes, exactly. This prevents players to have the edge of the base 40mm
(length of base) away from the transport so it is not possible to engage
someone 19 cm away. (10 cm movement, doubled for reaching opponent, -5
for leaving transport gives 15 cm. If you could deploy outside prior to
moving 15 cm you could charge someone who is 19 cm away. Our system limits
this to charging someone 15 cm away.)

Well, that seemed plausible to my friends and me, not necessarily to
anyone else...
