Default small error in the tau empires cheat sheet

i noticed that in the cheat sheet it said that the effective range of plasma rifles is 12in. doesn't it say in the rulebook that jet pack infantry can fire rapid fire weapons at full range even after moving?

Yes it can. But it is most effective within 12'' because it fires twice.

Jet Pack Infantry CAN NOT Rapid fire at full range. Nothing can.
However, they can fire a single shot after moving, not many types of infantry share this privilege. Think its only termies.

Its actually the crisis suit that bestows this privilege, not the jet pack,
IE: technically a gun drone could NOT fire at full range with a rapid fire weapon after moving, as its profile does not mention this ability.

Check the main rule book, the jet pack rule lets them fire rapid fire weapons as if stationary.

Does anything other than Tau have a Jet pack?

Some eldar units almost sort of do(spiders and jet bikes), but they have so many exceptions that they're a different rule. I think that the Tau may be it.
