I personally agree with coffee grunt with regard to Tetras. They are too cheap to be focused early, their skimmer frames making it a real pain to take them down when they remain at 36" and their maneuverability is great. The homing beacon is also fantastic, as they can double as crisis suit support. To top it off they are fairly reliable so you really can't go wrong without it.

Barracudas and Remoras are also reasonable for the aforementioned reasons, however I find them slightly too flimsy for my own liking, especially given you are going up against enemy forge world flyers if you use them.

Only thing I wanted to add was to consider the R'varna, bearing in mind that the rules are only experimental at the moment and so you run the risk of it being disallowed or nerfed. It is in my opinion one of, if not, the best things in the game. Its practically invincible and if you get a single Novacharge off combined with ignores cover markerlight the entire enemy deployment position is dead. It will one hit a squad of 3 carnafexes at once with ease, on average take 2 hullpoints from a landraider, and obliterate absolutely everything on foot, horde or MEQ. Classic forgeworld marketing strategy. Bearing this in mind, I proxied it once for a game, and ever since its been banned in my local gaming circle, with good reason. With this in mind it might be a wasted purchase.

*edit* You say that everything goes? Bring 3 of these bad boys, some anti 2+ save crisis suits and some anti air with a few tetras thrown in, gg
