Default Battlesuits can run?

I just got the new rulebook and saw the "run" rule and wondered, can battlesuits move 6" then run and then jump another 6" ?
thanks

Because that'll be a good thing for us Tau, which thus means that GW wouldn't give it to us.

Oh wait...our XV8s do get to run, but only so that the Assult Marines can too. ¬¬

Battlesuits are jump infantry, and unless I'm mistaken, jump infantry get to run.

To my knowledge everything but vehicule/skimmer can run.

Not sure about bike and jetbike though.

You can Move however far a model says it may move then you roll for run, normally with run you can not make a assault move if i remember correctly but in the codex its says Jet Pack Infantry can always move 6" in the assault phase, though i think it also says something about not getting the move after deepstriking

Yes if you run, you cannot assault unless you have fleet....but the jet pack still allow you to move 6" (maybe sideway?).

The absence of movement after deepstrike is an exception to the rule and is explicitely stated on p 27 of the codex (IIRC).

Currently the only bike that can do that is in the hands of the white scar space marine chapter.

As for the main question as stated yes battlesuits can run but you'll be giving up shooting for it.
