Default Rapid Fire

An occurence happened at a game today, and being relatively new to the Tau i gave in to my more experienced opponent, but the verdict still doesnt sit right. I wont give the details but boils down to this....

Just what are the rules of Crisis suits and rapid fire. I was under the impresssion the could repid fire up to their full range, and JSJ. However I was told that you still have to be within 12" to RF, so in effect they are only marginally better than regular troops. Was I wrong in this.....Where did I get confused? What are the rules and restrictions for RF with Crisis suits?

Rapid Fire is a weapon type.

1 shot up to max range
2 shots at <12"

Normally, if you move you can only shoot 2 shots @ <12"
Jetpacks (BGB pg??) allow you to move and fire rapid fire weapons, 1 shot @ max or 2 shots @ <12".

hope that helps.

EDIT: Falstead explains it so much better :P

Rapid fire weapons may always shoot twice at 12"

A stationary rapid fire weapon my shoot once at its maximum range.

Rapid fire weapons on crisis suits are always stationary.

A crisis suit may fire either once at up to maximum range or twice at 12" regardless of whether or not it moved.

Should also be noted in the entry about Rapid Fire that if you fire at ALL you CANNOT charge in the assault phase. This also affects Heavy weapons obviously as well as Ordinance but I was rather surprised about Rapid Fire.

This does not apply to those fired from Crisis Suits.

So, just to be safe... I could rapid fire my Crisis Suit's weapons (i.e. fire the plasma rifle twice), then move in assault?

Yes, you can.
Or, if you were crazy (or a ninja'O), charge into combat

Oh, definitely. I love the idea of my warrior commander, taking the fight to the enemy.

Does anyone have a page reference for that? I want to be certain before I teach someone that.
