Manual Fire of Wall of Martyrs Vengeance Weapon Battery

I got a rule question regarding Manual Fire of the Wall of Martyrs Vengeance Weapon Battery.

The specification of the Weapon Battery states that it's an Impassible Building with one emplaced weapon.

Under Manual Fire of Emplaced Weapons in the core rules, it speaks about a model embarked in the building.

On other hand, under the rules for Gun Emplacements it says a model need to be in base contact to fire the weapon.

I can see three possible interpretations of this:
* The weapon can't be manually fired, and you need to destroy the building (AV 14, 4 hull points) to destroy the weapon.
* The weapon can be destroyed (T7, W2) without destroying the building, but a model need to be in base contact with the actual weapon (which is tricky on the building model) to fire it manually.
* The weapon can be destroyed without destroying the building, and a model in base contact with the building can manually fire the weapon.

How do you usually play this?
