Default Special characters and battlesuits

Under Shadowsun and Farsight's descriptions, it says they are battlesuits, I have interpreted this to mean that they are allowed to deep strike and have acute senses. Can anyone tell me if I am wrong

Both have acute sense yes!

However, farsight can deep strike yes, however under the stealth armour rules, it states models equipped in stealth armour may deepstrike. My question is, does the xv22 experimental armour count as "stealth armour" for the purposes of page 27.

i dont think the XV22 is capable of infiltrate, deep strike or joining other units while shadowsun's drones are still alive

yes to acute senses, yes her control command node allows ld and morale tests based on her ld (which means that I probably will take her in my army to replace the now worthless ethereal)

as far as deep striking, sorry but it specifically does not mention it, whereas every other suit (not counting broadsides) point out under their suits ability that they can deepstrike. guess she has to walk like the rest of the army.

Yes, in the armory, they state that the battlesuit can deepstrike, however, in the battlesuit entry, it must say if it's able to deepstrike. And IIRC, Shawdowsun doesn't mention DS.

The armory specifically states what Stealth Armor, and XV-8's can do, what Shadowsun's XV-22 can do is specifically listed under her entry labeled XV-22 battlesuit.

Note that the other battlesuite entries reference the battlesuite type for looking up in the armory, Shadowsun however has her type in her profile and it gives her acute senses and an in built shield gennerator but says nothing about deep strike or infiltrate. Thus she will just have to walk.

The question of joining other squads is far more iffy though. Technicly seeing how drones work with IC's she should be able to but.... the lack of it in her profile seems to indicate she cant... looking into this.
