Do battle-armor units walk or run?

I see that some battle-armor squads have Ground MP and Jump MP. When a battle-armor squad uses ground MP, does this count as walking or running for the purposes of assigning attack modifiers?

Oops, just found it, "Infantry units never add attacker movement modifiers to their to-hit numbers" page 214. Sorry guys.

which as an added bonus makes them fantastic spotters

You bought the box set and are ready to expand your bt experience. Now what? | Modern Sourcebook Index | FASA Sourcebook Index | Equipment Reference Cards | DIY Pilot Cards | IWM Model Difficulty Database (WIP) | PaperTech Mech Counters

I'm increasingly out of synch with successive iterations of BattleTech authors, but it doesn't stop me from still being utterly convinced I understand the setting better than they do.

Yeah, it stacks well with them not taking a penalty on attack rolls while acting as spotters.
