Default Stealth Suits and Devilfish

I have asked my local GW and they say that stealth suits can't have a devilfish transport. but i can't see why not. they are about the same size as a standard fire warrior and are normally in smaller groups so how come they don't get a transport? :-\
I am sure that there are players that think that a tranport for stealth suits would be a good idea as they could get around better.

No.

Stealth suits can move 12 inches already. Stealth suits can't be shot by anything farther than 36 inches away.

I agree with HL, a devilfish would be a waste of points

No you can't give them a transport because in the codex theres not listing for it in the entry and the Devilfish can only transport Firewarriors. But why would you want them in a transport? They can already move fast and the stealthfield protects them from long ranged attacks already, if you put them in a transport they could be taken down and thats not what you want happened to your stealthsuits.

The Codex says it Devilfish cannot transport any XV Battlesuits. Although, I wonder if they could be transported. After exiting after moving 12 inches, could they still make the 6 inch move in assault phase as long as they dont assault?

Actually how do Stealths get to the battlefield. The firewarriors can there through devilfish or some of the many air transports. The Crisis get there through Orca's or some other air transport. But there's no mention on how thr Stealth's get there. I would find it hard to believe that they came to battle from the HQ on foot.

"On foot" has little meaning when you have a jetpack. Not to mention that Stealthsuits are the lone wolves and scouts of the Tau army, and as such would generally be at a warzone long before any other forces are even sent for.

They would probably be transported via an Orca with possibly pathfinders to scout the field well before the actual battle.
