Default Armoured company need ideas

Hi i've recently started an armoured company.
i prefer the tau empire to the imperiaum so ive decided that this will be an auxillary armoured company that generally opperates alone where their tactics ar suaitable.

I've decided to use this as the base for my army's banner.

Firstly, if you want to Tau-ify them, just add Sept symbols. Secondly, depending on how much they still like the Emperor (lot, little, you decide) get rid of all aquilas.

Lastly, grammar and spelling are always appreciated. Please use the spell check feature at the bottom of the reply page if you have a hard time spelling.

I'm going to add sept symbols by hybridising the Aquila's by replacing the eagle with the tau symbols.
I'm also thinking of replacing the turbo laser with railguns that "count as" the turbo laser, but i need to know the dimensions of the real railguns because i want to make them as well.

sorry about the spelling and grammer. I'll make it better from now on.

First off, Tau don't have the resources to make a titan, let alone give it upkeep. Ignore the fluff, and you can find one that was made on the board earlier by Greydeath I think.

Secondly, go ahead for it. It might help to round out the edges of the tanks to make them more Tau-y, but it's up to you.

Lastly, thanks for the care.

Which railgun, the hammerhead or the broadside one? They're significantly different in size, and to make it even more confusing, the manta has a heavy railgun(yay titan killer).

Given the transport capacity of a manta(medium sized army), I wouldnt imagine a reasonably small/med sized titan to be terribly un-tau like. Much modification required, though. =P

ummm dimensions for both rail guns would be good thanx, I'm not sure how big I want to rail guns yet.
the titan is meant to be part of a ausillary force so they use mostly human weapons
