Default do jump packs mean jump infantry?

if i give a Blood Angels commander a jump pack. does that make him jump infantry? ie: can he then deep strike? or if i give death company jump packs.
i know this is the case with normal space marines because it says in the wargear section that models with jump packs can deep strike. but jump packs aren't in the Blood angels wargear section... im guessing its just another of the many stupid oversights in the BA codex but just lookin for some clarification

Yes, given a Jump Pack, a Space Marine is considered a Jump Infantry thus they can move like one and deep-strike as well.

Common Sense. OK, but seriously, I would really doubt people are going to argue over this but I do see some concerns unfortunately. Best bet; look at Codex: Space Marine.

Hey Salacious.

Just to clarify:

...The Space Marines use jump packs, which utilize high powered controlled bursts from turbines to make bounding leaps across the field of battle, jumping over terrain with ease.
So in answer to your question, Jump Pack does mean Jump Infantry.

Page 52, main rulebook, jump infantry:

Some special troops use devices ... the Space Marines use jump packs ... Jump infantry can use their jump packs (or equivalent)

My bad, apparently I entirely missed Kakashi's post.

Ah, well, still works.

;D

k thanks. i was just a little thrown off because the assault squads had the special rule of deep strike in their profile yet the other units like veteran assault squads didnt. but it seems clear enough that by the way of jump infantry, they can deep strike. thanks for your help
