Vader and panic

Vader also cannot gain suppression tokens and will never benefit from suppression cover. 

Vader does not duck from laser shots, laser shots duck from him.
Ohh wait, wrong one. This was Norris.

But this is really a drawback from Vader. He would have been better with a courage of 10 than "-".

Vader still takes suppression. He just doesn't have a suppression value for the sake of panic.

The cover increase only applies to trooper units.

No, Vader does not take suppression tokens. RRG pg 21 under Courage says that if there is no Courage value a trooper doesn’t take suppression tokens. Vader is a trooper, it’s on his card.

Vader does not take suppression tokens. From page 21 under "Courage":

  • Some trooper units do not have a courage value. These units have a “–” on their unit card where a courage value would normally be.
    • A trooper unit without a courage value cannot be assigned a suppression token. As such, that unit cannot become suppressed or panicked.

edit: Ninja'd!

Then they have to edit that cause that refers to specifically troopers. Not the other units.

My bad.

Edit: disregard this.

Again my mistake.

No worries, i’ve seen it a lot that people don’t realize that Luke and Vader are troopers. Trooper is their type, Commander their rank...

Yeah, the use of Troopers as a unit type is really close to “Troops”, so I think a lot of 40k players especially get confused. I have to keep reminding myself to refer to Rebel Troopers as a “Corps” unit.

You have to make a difference between role (unit rank) and a kind (unit type).

There are 2 unit types. Trooper and Vehicle. And two subtype for the vehicle, repulsor and ground vehicle. 
And there are 5 unit ranks. Commander, Corp, Special forces, Support and Heavy. 

The role of each unit could be of any type. We could even see a vehicle commander or a Heavy Tropper. And it don't has to be, that the Heroes (Vader, Luke, Hand) have to be commanders all the time. They could as well be special forces.
