Default Quick question about A.S.S.

Exactly what is the A.S.S.? I've heard about it but don't know anything about it.

It's an abbrevation for Advanced Stabilisation System, a battlesuit support system that allows you to fire heavy weapons on the move.

It gives you the slow and purposeful rule.
Mostly used on broadsides to move and fire their railguns

Allows for the Broadsides to move D6 inches and still fire heavy weapons.

the whole squad gets the bonus if the whole squad pays for it.

How effecting is the ASS? I am gaming next Friday and plan on using my Broadside Suits and those would come in handy. I am playing against Marines and he has already threatened Deep Strike on my Broadside suits. I guess it would be a good thing to have the ASS for movement, but my thought would be to put a FW sqaud or a Kroot squad around Broadside suits and keep them stationary. Any suggestions?

the D'yi is all around an excellent upgrade simply for the support of a railgun platform that can move well. I like it, but I'd rather have a hammerhead anyway, soo...

Cheers!
