I was always under the impression that it ony affected the miniature who had Acute sense (In our case every Tau suits) and that it was not transferable.

well acording to the USR IC that joins a unit confers Acute sense / night vision to the the unit it joins as well as in vise versa.

if this is true FW just got a little stronger as wel as making Static Tau still viable.

Well I don't know about Static Tau still being viable. But I was under the impression that they still give Acute sense to the unit they join. (Don't have BOB with me at the moment.) I mean all they have to do is lean over to the next guy and say "Hey, enemy position 100 meters out at 2 o'clock." or "Adjust fire 4 meters right."

So would the same also apply to Black sun filter? I mean the one taken by the Fire warrior shas'ui.

Although a Commander with BSF, would be a lot more effective then with the Acute sense and the BSF bonus.

Doesn't the BSF say something about only the model equipped with it gets the bonus?

Maybe, I don't have my book handy right now.

So a commander would tranfer the Acute Sense reroll, but not the increaced range afforded by the BSF...kind of odd.

That's IIRC, I am also flying without books.

But yeah the whole thing is kind of odd if you compare it to what a real world modern army can do in the dark. Just gotta remember that it's only a game, it doesn't have to make sense. ;D

The Blacksun filter only effects the model carrying it.
