Default Ethereal joining a Stealth Squad?

If an ethereal joins a squad of stealthsuits, does it count as having stealth armour?

But since the etheral doesnt have a jumppack, he'll not be able to make the moves with teh stealth suits, effectively slowing teh stealth suits down to a crawl....

as drones would count as having it, i would say "yes". Bear in mind if a character with a skill joins a unit without, neither can use it. or vice versa. in this case, etherial cant infiltrate, and you can neve rmake your 6" assault move, unless you charge someone.

I would have to disagree here, the drones mentioned are technically part od the squad and are given a special pass on that since they have to be taken was wargear, think marines for a moment. If a chaplain joins a bike squad upgraded with furious assault, he can't take it because he wasn't part of the same Choice. Unless the ethereal has stealth then much like the jetpack rules he slows down the squad, in short, a stealth team fearless, but pretty friggin usless.

Yes, the drones are wargear and part of the squad really so they get the special rules. The Etherial on the other hand is just joining the squad. As the rulebook is pretty clear that an IC joining a squad with Special Rules that the IC does not have, neither gets to use them. In this case suddenly no stealth, no infiltrate and no jet pack. Not a good idea I imagine.

I second/confirm what Vash113 said. It's all in the rulebook, more specifically under the section for IC's joining other units.

Yep...that screws everybody. No IC status. No stealth. No jet pack. No infiltration.

Yea, but it allows you to do a realy cool conversion based on the picture in the book of the ethereal jumping down with some xv8s. I always liked that picture, and am kinda hurt that the ethereal cant have a jet pack.
