Default Quick question about Rapid-Fire and Crisis suits

Under 4th edition (too many darn rules floating around in the empty space called my head), if you move do you now get to fire rapid fire weapons twice if you're within 12" ? And once if you're within 24" (plasma rifle for example)?

Yes, you are right. You can shoot once at Xin-12in, and in rapid fire range 12 through 12 in. ) you get to fire twice. Furthermore, because of the Tau Jetpack technology, crisis suits can move AND SHOOT once at 24 inches, and no one else can do that!

um... terminators can do that, the only thing is the only rapid fire weapons they have access to are combi bolters.

otherwise you are correct sir! ;D

I'm sure they're very sad about that, with all those heavy weapons they can run around with just as easily.

I never said that termies were the smartest, just that they can rapid fire. also, storm bolters are assault not heavy (I know what you meant, just giving a hard time :P )

Actually, bikes do that all the time, and with SM bikes, it's twin-linked to boot (with bolters at least).
Bikes are superior in firepower capability and maneuverability to our suits, and tougher to boot.

Not even true in theory. J-S-J is 90% of a suits survivability. Non-turbo boosting bikes die to AP3 weapons like anything else, and turbo boosting bikes normally end up in rapid fire range, and failing five saves out of sixty isn't hard.

Chaos terminators are twin linked bolters, not storm bolters ;D
