Default A.S.S. Broadsides

Hey guys, I was wondering if broadsides will get an assault move with the A.S.S. I hope you guys can answer this without breaking copyright.

Cheers!

Nope. Assault moves are no longer part of the codex as a special Tau Jet Pack equipment rule; they're now handled as part of the Jump Troop "Jet Pack" entry in the 4ed Rulebook. As such, the broadside dosen't have the Jump Troop - Jet Pack rule.

They never did. Broadsides have Never had a Tau jetpack, they've always been footsloggers.

Actually I'm at work for the moment so I cant access this
One thing that has me concerned, has the crisis suits lost the ability to count as holding still(even though they have moved) for the purpose of firing heavy weapons and weapons with Rapid Fire?

No just for rapid fire weapons. And no, I am talking about the A.S.S. stabalization kit for broadsides that allows them to move and shoot their tl railguns. And crisis suits still have a 6" move and a 6" ass move!
