Wings makes the Libby/Dread move "as if he had a Jump Pack"; doesn't change his unit type to Jump Infantry, so sadly no that wouldn't apply.
and "A model equipped with a jump pack is jump infantry"
But since he's not equipped with a jump pack, only moves AS IF he had a jump pack...
But...thats my whole point. He moves as if he has a jump pack. Models with a jump pack move like jump infantry (because they are jump infantry) if it moves like Jump infantry its not moving like a vehicle is it? From a fluff perspective how hard is it to believe that something that can grow big psychic wings might be able to lift up off the ground even when the leg servos are broke?
I'm not arguing with you mate Fluff-wise I agree with you; I'm just regurgitating some of the "long" conversations I've had on the topic elsewhere because I guess the game mechanics sadly don't support it, i.e. "equipped with" is not the same as "moves as". Pedantic I know...
It's the same as Mephiston being affected by JotWW having used Wings in the previous turn. Mephiston is classed as Infantry and the use of Wings doesn't change his unit type to Jump Infantry so he can get hit by it... though will only succumb once in a million years
