Default Shadowsun and her "stealth" battlesuit

Can shadowsun Infiltrate, she has a stealth feild generator like xv15 and xv25 battlesuits, who can infiltrate, yet it doesnt say she can

can she?

if not , why not cos that'd be quite good with 5th ed out flanking

Yeah, her suit isn't as good as regular stealthsuit...but slightly better then regular XV-8 suits...but it's still a sweet model though.

BTW, on a side note, you might want to reconsider your Avvy, it's kind of borderline and some might find it offensive.

She does have a Stealth field generator, but under the Stealth field generator rules, it doesn't say that those equipped with them get the infiltrate special rules.

What's wrong with his Avvy? I find it pretty funny.

True Stealth shield generator doesn't imply Infiltrate ability...they work well together, but they are not a package deal.


As for the Avvy, like I say it's kind of borderline, some may not have a problem with the fact that each and everyone of his post flips them the bird, but some might...and since the Admin and Mod are trying ot build a forum where rules of descency and respect rules, that's why I felt it was worth noting is a friendly manner.

She totally does have a stealthfield generator. Under the special rules and the "XV22 battlesuit" Entry it says that she has a hardwired Shield Generator and a stealthfield generator. It's easy to miss... You'd think it would be under equipment.

You'd think so, but are we even sure if Blue Laser has a secret desert hide out?! :P Sorry, couldn't help it.

But yes, that was the point I was trying to make when I posted that she did have it. And that the Stealth field generator doesn't give the special rule Infiltrate.

wha?! ???

anyway, on a different but related subject, the infiltrate rules refer to being in sight of enemies (if attempting to deploy 12-18" away). can you roll to see if the enemy can see stealth suits through the stealth generator? it would make sense (to me anyway) but i'm fairly sure you cant
