Default Terminator armour & jump jets. Is this possible?

Hello,
I would like to know if it is possible to equip a marine with jump jets and a terminator armour. ???
If it is not possible, do you know the paragraph or the phrase in the codex that prohibit this?
Technically, when a character has access to the armory, can choose both items. I don't know if this is legal, the only thing I know is it would be a lot of points; but imagine a command squad equipped this way, with a chaplain & librarian... Truly awesome in hand to hand combat... so many power weapons together... imagine the faces of the enemy.... :
Major drawback, the high points cost of this squad...
What do you think?
Thanks to all in advance.

Heya,

Nope. Jump Packs do not have a small "t" next to them in the armory; therefore cannot be used with Terminator Armor.
Simply read the text above the armory. It's pretty clear on this and gives you the symbol for reference.

Cheers!

I've gotta say, that would be awesome. Probably run about 80 points per model, though.

Needless to say, that'd never happen. Ever. Part of terminator armour is lack of mobility. Besides, you'd need one hell of a jump pack to move a termie.

I'm sure someone somewhere tried strapping a drop-ship engine to their terminator armour...

...And I'm sure nobody has tried it since...

This used to be legal in the first print of the 3rd ed codex. It was changed ASAP.

Mind you, back then strapping a Dozer-Blade to a Land Speeder was also legal, another of the great errors.
