on a assault order of A unit it talks about as part of a charge it can make a ranged attack but a last sentence states it MUST still make the ranged attack before its activation ends. so is it
1. they do a ranged attack regardless or is it
2. they choose to do a ranged attack before they move and if they choose to do the ranged attack then they must do the ranged attack and if they choose before the charge to not make a attack then they dont make the ranged assault attack
looked in erratta did not find anything and it states both it can and it must make the attack it also differs from assault from not units as the last statement states it may so it is different for non units (ex vanguard)

It is 2. If they receive the order they must follow it. If they choose to charge they have an option to make a ranged attack. If they make that attack they must take the shot even if the charge is unsuccessful.

Note this is different than the assault ability.

they choose to do a ranged attack before they move

if they choose to make a ranged attack, it is after the movement of all models in the unit is completed.
