Default Design a Battlesuit!

Hi people of Tau online!
I came up with this Idea and thought I'd share it with you lot.
Ok here is how it works...
you fill out all the little things to you liking using the options in Italics (or make your own) It couldn't be simplier.

Name: E.g.XV66 or XV92(whatever your like)
Class: E.g.troop, Elite, fast attack, heavy support, HQ
Pilot: E.g.Shas'la, shas'ui, shas'vre, shas'el, shas'o
Equipment: E.g.Jetpack, Irdium armour, markerlight (or something else)
Weapon systems: (pick two)E.g.Plasma rifle, fusion blaster, burst cannon, etc etc (or you can design your own!)
Specialty: E.g. close combat, sniper, heavy weapons, (once again you can design your own
Support systems: (pick two)E.g.backsun filter, sheild generator, drone controller, etc etc (don't like any of these options design one yourself)
Drone: (optional, pick one or two of any) Gun drone, marker drone, etc etc (yes you can design your own again!)
Sept/Army commonly used by: Your own or something out of the Tau codex
Description: a little history of your battlesuit


Important: I will allow any weapons, drones or whatever out of the Tau codex but the tau codex only

Enjoy!

Ok here is an example...

name: XV34 "stormbringer"
Class: fast attack
Pilot: Shas'vre
Equipment: advanced stealth sheild
Weapon system: Smart missle sytem, fusion blaster
Specialty: stealth trooper
Support sytem: Backsun filter, targetting array
Drone: a "fire" drone with a twin-linked flamer
Sept/army commonly used by: The Mont'yr (my tau army!)
Description: Used by the mont'yr to sneak attack an enemy strongpoint, a team can slip into an enemy bunker, kill its owners before the enemy commanders know its happened.

How about that?
