How do I move a destructible mesh with a vector?

I have a destructible mesh of a plane, and I want to make it move straight forward, it wold just be a simple translation down one axis. I was thinking of using a vector to do that, but I couldn’t find anything on this and have no idea how to do it.


After about 15 minutes of experimenting I tried this and it worked. Is this how it should be done or did I get lucky?
