Are the ork bombardment cannons the same as the SM ones?

Another question:
For the ork gunz batteries that require a D6 roll for strength, is that a 1 time roll at the beginning of the game say, or do you roll that up everytime you are going to shoot?

Roll for every shot, and when did the orks get bombardment cannon?

The Hammer class has it on the prow, as well as the DethDeala

In the absence of anything saying otherwise, I would assume them to be the same as the Space Marines' ones.

Exactly the same yes. Roll every turn.

Short ranged however...

I remember an SM player boasting how his Bombardment Cannon was going to level my Cruisers in no time...

I sank his Battlebarge with two turns of concentrated Lance fire at extreme range...

That was quite funny (if a little lucky, he suffered a critical Bulkhead Collapse and lost six hit points from one of my first salvoes)...

I personally like the bombardment cannon on the heaviest of Ork ships, it a very orky weapon and at the same time doesnt unballance them, still very little range combined with a big nasty punch just like the other ork weapons as well as limited fields of fire. good stuff
