So I was reading about corsair units and strategy on 1d4chan.org
and I read about giving bale strike band the jet back upgrade so they can be more mobile
AND get relentless but I cannot find that rule anywhere inside...

So I would appreciate some clarifications


thank you all in advance

The description of Jet Pack units in the 7th ed rules :

"Jet Pack units have the Bulky, Deep Strike and Relentless special rules"

So yeah, Balestrikes with Jet Packs are everything Scourges wish they were.

In addition to what Hydranixx mentioned:

Jet packs also grant a 2d6 movement in the assault phase if you aren't assaulting (like a jet bike).  This allows for what is commonly referred to as a JSJ or Jump, shoot, jump maneuver.  As the name implies, units with jet packs can move over sight blocking terrain or cover to fire - then (usually) move back before the enemy has a chance to respond.

Additionally jet packs adds 6" to the reckless abandon move.  With this bonus, any corsair infantry becomes Extremely difficult to successfully charge because they get to move 6+d6" immediately after firing overwatch.

All this, relentless, and an improved armor save for 5 points makes the jet pack pretty much standard equipment for balestrikes.
