Default space marine missile launchers

looking for clarification. can any unit who can take a missile launcher pay the extra points for flakk missiles? i can't find anything in the codex that says they can't but then i can't find anything that says they can either...

What Codex are you looking at where it's unclear?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

you can buy the flakk when its clearly stated. if a model can have ml but in his option is not stated that he can take the flakk...well...he can't!

by that reasoning then, no-one except scouts can take flakk missiles

It's different in the SM Codex (than in the CSM one) : some units may have access to the "Heavy weapons list", where it is stated that any missile-launcher may include flakk missiles for 10 more points.

For the scouts, it is specifically written because they don't have access to the "Heavy weapons list", but only to Heavy Bolter and Missile Launcher.

Yeah..again, what edition of what Codex are you reading? I can't for the life of me see why it isn't obvious in the AM, SM, SW, DA, or BA Codices but I haven't really read though the CSM one. It's in the Heavy Weapon list as an option, any unit that has allowance to that list can take it. Otherwise it has to be in the unit's entry like @alt-f4 pointed out with Scouts.
