Yes. A soldier carrying a rocket launcher can be transported on a supply 
  vehicle and it can be reloaded indefinitely from any supply vehicle 
within 5 ft or supply depot within 10 ft.

A number of differences:

1) The soldier must be mounted on the vehicle to move around the field, 
then dismounted to fire.

2) The rocket launcher must be reloaded after every shot.

3) Tanks ignore frontal hits

Regarding soldiers that can move under their own power, we assumed 
everyone would use standard, un-powered figurines for infantry so the 
rules currently reflect that.   However, the hobby is all about 
innovation, so *if* (and that's still a big "if") infantry exists that 
can move under their own power on the battlefield, then they will be 
welcome on the field ... probably with a 21-gun salute :-)
