Default Techonogical advancements of the kroots

Kroots are very weird with their tech advancement. on one hand they are lke some Unknown papua new guinea triobe and at the other spectrum, they have spacecrafts like the Warsphere and stuff. How advance are they actually ???

Well the most advanced thing they have as far as I know is warp tech, something which they hida from the Tau. But as I remember their tech is assumed to be taken from Orks so somewhere along those lines, though not quite as advanced.

You know how a Space Marine can eat something and find out about its life and gain some of its memories? Well, because the instuctions to build warbuggies and such in the Ork DNA, when Kroot ate them, they gained every memory and adapted their tech for themselves. Their tech actually works... unlike Ork tech, which has to look believe able enough for Orks to think it shud worc.

If so, then their tech should suck as much as the orks right? Something is amiss :-\

Kroot actually have a brain and make things work right instead of just pound rivets into it.

from the kroot index xenos:
The limited specimens that have been made available for study are found to have brains composed of a front and rear hemisphere. It appears that the larger, frontal hemisphere controls the functions of logic, reasoning and memory while the rear, less developed hemisphere is more attuned to the imagination ad creativity. If this is indeed the case, it would go some way to explaining the pragmatic approach to life of the Kroot and their current technological stagnation

and as well.
...orks crash on pech. kroot eat orks. absorb orky mekboy dna. learn to travel the stars. meet orks again. get hammered. 20 year guerrilla war to reclaim pech (with tau assistance). and then...

The Kroot now looked to rebuild their worlds as they had been before the Ork incursion, but those Kroot who had remained behind to fight the Orks had other ideas. They were not about to rebuild a society that had led them into war and then failed to defend them. Led by a visionary leader named Anghkor Prok, they advocated a return to the old ways, to the time before the coming of the Ork Rok. There would be no rebuilding and the Kroot would revert to the traditional ways that had served them perfectly well for thousands of years. A compromise was reached where each kindred would spend time as mercenaries and fight for other races, returning to their home world periodically to pass on any useful genetic material they had acquire following their victories. A number of warspheres remained on Pech to guard against further invasions and the mercenary Kroot departed to ply their trade amongst the stars.

and specifically on their technology:

Kroot weapons range from primitive black powder rifles to those that have been adapted by the Tau to fire charged pulse rounds that increase their penetrative properties and the kinetic energy delivered by a hit. Kroot guns are the known limit of Kroot battlefield weapon technology. While the Kroot have relatively limited warp-capable ships, their understanding of their workings is an innate one, gleaned from eating the flesh of Ork Meks rather than a learned one. Aside from weapons technology, the Kroot have little in the way of advanced equipment, preferring to rely on handmade implements and a feral world level of technology.

seriosly its annoying- as to your question yes, the Kroot are returning to their earlier culture. as it says in the codex there are numerous industrial sites on Pech, they are in disrepair and have been voluntaryily abandoned. they want to go back to being Kroot- they've brought with them certain techs to help defend themselves.
