Stabalising systems? Targetting arrays? Mass distribution pods? The possibilities are endless...

Edit: did this inspire the idea per chance?

If you look closely, those arn't Tetras. They are gunnery seats made from Tetras. I like this one enough to add to my list to actually make. Now I just need artillery rules for Tau. >

Good as usual.
You shure do mkae it easy to get good ideas into real life by your photo shop ideas.

Wargamer I think that would work great with your rules also.

Good stuff.

Again.

BS 3 (face it, Tau can't aim on their own) Str 14, AP 1 or large template Str 10 AP 2.

Just made it up. Don't really know what would be appropriate. I would ask Wargamer for that.

Simple: the rail fired might be a smart missile of some sort, homign in upon its target. Beyond that, very little non-self-propelled ballsitic objects travel in a straight trajectory.
