Default Vectored Retro Thrusters Question

Simple question that's driving me nuts....sometimes these warhammer rules are so hard to find :S

If I have VRT can they be used in the assault phase to move similar to jetpacks?

VRT allows the Hit and Run special rule.

First you make an initiative test if you fail you don't move

If you pass you may move out of CC and moves 3D6 in a straight line any direction not affected by difficult terrain.

That's the very basic, however you only use it at the end of the assault phase after the combat for that round has been determined.

I've never fully understood those things, they confused me. Folks kept saying to put them on a team of braodsides but I just have not understood why yet? Be nice if the rules were a little clearer.

You can't put VRT onto broadside teams it's for single member "Monats" or independent characters only i never play monats and i'll be dammed to hell if i ever let Renmei run away from battle

try using your battlesuits as XV9's
they can show you how good these things can be
the thrusters are good against assaults from things like dreads and a combat squad
anything like orks= no good
