No, read the breakoff rules. They are pretty self explanatory. There is even an index at the back of the rulebook. If you look up 'breakoff' it says 'see Voluntary Breakoffs'. If you look up Voluntary breakoff's it says - Page 138.

Seriously, I have no problems helping with nuances, but these are literally IN THE RULEBOOK and can't be more clear.

The rules on who is allowed to break off, and when, are in the section headed "voluntary break offs" on page 138.

Troops who are not listed as being able to "break off" in this section of the rules covering who is allowed to "break off" cannot "break off"

Breaking off takes place in the Joint Action Phase. The rules covering what some troops can and sometimes must do in the Joint Action Phase, and when they can or must do so can be found on pages 138-142 "Outcome Moves in the Joint Action Phase".

Troops whos situation is not covered by any of the outcome situations listed in this section are not subject to the resulting outcomes and so cannot make outcome moves (as these only result from situations they are not currently in). This includes "being broken off from" - this is not an outcome, so has no outcome move.
