Default Opinion and clarification on the Jetpack and heavy weapon rules

Hi everybody

Been looking around on the forum without finding any threads which suit my inquiry (think its spelled like this).

The new rules indicates that a jetpacker is relentless, and may so fire a heavy weapon after moving. A nice thing for marker drones and sniper drones (though the spotter may not fire if he moves/)

BUT

The 5'th FAQ from GW states in the very last Q and A that a model without a Stab. System may not move and fire a Heavy weapon.

Which rule is the correct one???

They are both correct. Drones do not count as having Jetpacks unless the model with the controller has a jetpack. This means that Drones with Crisis Suits or Stealth Teams are Relentless, but Drones attached to Broadsides and Sniper Drones are not. The clarification is there to explain that taking a Stabilization System on a Broadside will not effect the drone.

The only non-vehicle models in the Tau list that can fire Heavy Weapons and move at present are Marker Drones attached to Stealth or Crisis Suits.

Thx for the quick reply, but I thought that a drone always comes equipped with a jetpack a therefore is per say a "Jetpacker"??

Nope. It's the same unit type as whoever it's attached to.

Well it depend which drone you are talking about.

As stated: Wargear drone (gun, shield, marker, sniper) that the same unit type as their controller.

Whereas: Independent gundrone (fast attack choise) are jetpack infantry.
