Default might be a noob question

this might be a noob question, does are stealth troops get "stealth" as described in the BOB on page 76? I feel they should but I dont know.

Do they though? Can't remember off hand, but they have Stealth Suits, rather than a USR I thought.


And try to avoid one word posts

they don't have the stealth rule. they have the stealth suit rule.

The stealth rule is more powerful from memory. It would make sense, but they don't have it.

I can't find anywhere where it say they do, it says they get acute sences(which I can't find in the 5ht ed BOB), infiltrate and Deep strike but nothing about stealth, but since they have a stealth field generator they should get stealth, but again in the stealth field generator section they never mention it.

stealth field generator makes it if they are assaulted they are treated as if they are in cover while being assaulted, while the "stealth" rule gives them +1 to their cover save, but since they have to roll to even spot them I guess it is better.

Basically. Stealth Suit is better than Stealth USR, and as it doesn't say they have it, then obviously they don't

They don't have it... The Stealth USR grants +1 to cover saves. Where as the Stealth Suit Rule is done the same way as Night Fight. And Acute Sensors is on the USR page in the same bit with Night Vision.
