Crisis Shas'vre ------- Elite
Stealth Shas'vre ----- Elite
Broadside Shas'ui - Heavy Support
Crisis Shas'ui --------- Elite
Stealth Shas'ui ------- Elite
Fire Warrior Shas'ui Troop
Fire Warrior Shas'la - Troop
Spotter ---------------- Heavy Support
Shaper ----------------- Troop
Kroot ------------------ Troop
Kroot Hound ----------- Fast Attack
Krootox Rider --------- Heavy Support
Vespid Stingwing --- Fast Attack
Strain Leader --------- Fast Attack
Gun Drone ------------- Fast Attack

[/tt]

Thx Rafe!

A second question - does anyone of you know why the Battlesuit Weapon Systems are not listed under Ranged Weapons in the Reference sheet?

Yup,

but Cyclic Ion Blaster is not there and also Airbursting Fragmentation Projector.
Bad initial formulation - not ALL of the Battlesuit Weapons are there* 8)

EDIT: Anyone knows why they are missing from the List?

They were missing because they're special issue weapons the refrence sheet just shows all of the most commonly used weapons.

Rogue Fire warrior has hit the nail on the head, they are not technically Battlesuit weapons, they are Special Issue wargear.
