Infantry drop
« on: 12 November 2017, 15:48:50 »
I was reading TRO 3085 when I found out that the Rabid Foxes had infantry units that are "Able to deploy from orbit on personal reentry units"

However when I read Strategic Operations, the only drops that a Paratrooper unit can make are Atmospheric ones and not Space ones.
Should the "deploy from orbit" be understood as dropped in the atmosphere (which would take away some of the surprise)?
In turn they tested each Clan namesake
In trial against the ice hellion's mettle.
Each chased the ice hellion, hunting it down.
All faild to match the predator's speed and grace.
Khan Cage smiled and said. "And that is how we shall be."

No, it just means there's no rules to cover "deploy from orbit on personal reentry units"
