Default Neo-classic lone tank hunter

First post for me - first question - is this a decendant of Total Tau?

Oh kay.... so the traditional suit is...

XV8
Tl FB
DC
2 Shield drones

total - 73

and the use is to get close, or deep strike close and blow up tanks

Now in the new book, your deep strikers don't deviate if landing in LOS to the Path finder's Fish... AND Shas'vres get a boat load of new annoyance toys... so here's a new one:

Neo-Classic Loan Tank Hunter

Vre'
TL Fusion B
Vectored Thrusters
Iridium Armor
Stimm Paks

total: 93 pts

This model will drop in with pin point accuracy thnx to the standard issue Devil Fish, and then proceed to dust one tank of any description that needs to die. (with pin point accuracy, I'm almost tempted to give him a fusion and a msl pod instead of the TL fusion b/c i can almost gurantee a rear armor shot)

Afterwhich, it will be exceedingly difficult to kill because of the 2+ armor save, and the Stimm pak. Even if by some miracle (roll1 on 2nd jump), the enemy does catch it in CC because it's slower, hopfully the 2+.4+ will preserve it and allow it to jump back on its turn, and blast away again.

for 93 pts, this is less than the 96 pts throw away drone deep striker, and will provide a psych distraction as the enemy is much more likely to come after your expensive, massively converted model than the unit of "underpowered" flying pizza boxes.

what say you?
