The explanation is simple, I caught the closing minutes of "FutureWeapon"s report on the Future Combat System (FCS) and my inner-House Ruler went "oooh!"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Future_Combat_System (Future Combat System)

SUGV-A SUGV has the following profile:

So long as the SUGV has Line of Sight on an enemy Unit its attached squad counts as having Frag Grenades.

MULE/ARV-MULEs and ARVs share the following profile:
WS2 BS3 S3 T4 W2 I2 A1 Ld- Sv5+
Special Rules
A MULE allows its Attached Squad to carry an additional Special Weapon.
An ARV may carry one of the following heavy weapons: Heavy Bolter, Missile Launcher, Mortar. It counts as an Artillery Gun.

Networked-A Future Force Warrior Squad may charge an enemy unit that is not within their Line of Sight so long as their is a Node with the enemy Unit in Line of Sight.

Intelligent Munition System (IMS): 20pts
WS1 BS1 S0 T4 W1 I0 A0 Ld- Sv5+

Semi-autonomous Seismic Sensors-An IMS with this Upgrade gains +1BS when targeting a Tank or Monstrous Creature.
Perimeter Secure-IMS Squads do not have to keep in Unit Coherency. IMS Squads may Infiltrate if the Scenario allows it. An IMS is immobile.
Safe Munitions-If an IMS is destroyed any models in base contact suffer 1 hit from the Air Burst Mine
Networked-IMS gains +1BS for each Node within 12" of the target. IMS do not require Line of Sight.

I probably should point out I have no military knowledge, no Imperial Guard Codex and no 5th edition rulebook. Oh well, stay tuned!:)

Wow. ElectroDarts have the most broken rules I've ever seen. Congratulations.

I assume it means that if the pinning test is passed, the assault continues, otherwise I agree with you, Charax.

Whoops, that's what I get for rushing!:o

Hopefully the Intelligent Munition System will hold up to scrutiny.

I'm thinking of doing 1 or 2 Profiles per day, then starting to think about Character and Vehicle Upgrades.
