Default crisis suit query

In the codex, the rules for battlesuits say they count as not moving for the purpose of rapid fire weapons. But units fireing rapid fire weapns cant make assault moves. So, my question is can crisis suits with plasma rifles still make an assault move or jet pack move?

I never questioned it, simply ran them as if they were assault weapons.

It's in the rulebook. Crisis suits count as stationary when firing rapid fire weapons. They may move in the assault phase, either to assault or move 6" because of their jet packs.

It's also stated in the jet pack entry (BGB pg.55 last paragraph) that jet pack troops are allowed to shoot with rapid fire weapons and still assault.
