Default Jet Packs

Simple question, do jet packs mean I can move 12 inches in the movement phase, it doesn't really say anything about distance in the rules entry, just that I move 2d6 in the assault phase?

so the fact you can move , fire then move 2d6 inany direction in the assault phase makes you sad ??

its a Tau tactic , its gonna keep you out of CC and if theterrains right
out of shot .
id rather have that than jump packs ( for tau ) ;)

Jump packs move 6" in the movement phase, ignoring intervening models and terrain, treating their landing point as dangerous if it is difficult or dangerous, and can move 2d6" in the assault phase, again ignoring intervening models. This is very good for the *pop out, fire, pop back* of Tau. Who are the only current users of Jetpacks, I believe.

Eldar and Dark Eldar have them on Bikes, as do Legion Space Marines (and Sammael). They are "Jetbikes". looking through the Daemons Summary, the Blue Scribes, Screamers, and Plaguedrones are all Jetpack units (although only Blue Scribes and Plaguedrones are specifically Jetpack *Unit Type*).

@Creon, there is a difference between Jump *Unit Type* and Jetpack *Infantry type*

I don't guarantee my memory is always right, but Jetbikes are different than jetpacks. Some added rules.
