Default How many Tau pilot a Devilfish/Skyraw/Hammerhead?

Is it only one in the cockpit?? Or two?? How many? I've been curious to this lately...

Devilfish have a single pilot. Hammerheads have a pilot, a co-pilot, and a commander. Skyrays have a pilot and a gunner. This is all according to Imperial Armor 3.

You think it'd be more. If you want to call the Devilfish an IFV, it'd need at least a pilot, gunner and commander. Thet's the standard (I think) for most modern IFVs. However, they are aliens and have robots. Hammerheads should probably have a pilot, gunner, commander and maybe some other dude? Probably the same for Skyray.

Keep in mind that a lot of secondary systems on Tau vehicles are going to be handled by drone intelligences.

I modelled a dfish chassis (which can be used as a HHead and Skyray with an Aircaste pilot, a FW gunner and of course you can put a commander in the turret.

The devilfish has a commander too, why else would one come with the devilfish model (unless they're lazy at the packaging department).

Well, not according to IA 3. But that may just mean that it doesn't need a commander.
