Lightbulb XV15 help

Rendmetal here again for help and info,
this time i was wondering, i know that xv15s are basically xv25s, and that they can't take support systems, but do people still give them some anyway? or markerlights? and if so, is it 'legal'? cause im making my stealth teams infantry woodchippers, and was looking to give a big BS boost to my xv15s with targeting arrays.

Under the current codex, XV15s and XV25s both count as a Stealth Team and as such both use the same rules.
As such they may both use a single support system per suit, and you may upgrade a single shas'ui to a shas'vre. The shas'vre may then take a markerlight and a pair of drones (markerdrones). The SMT (stealthed markerlight team) was a popular option in 5th edition, but has had less mention in the new edition (especially with the new codex).
If you're looking for an infantry hunter, keep them cheap and simple (30 points a suit is steep enough) and rely on markerlight support from outside of the unit where necessary.

Ok, thanks! All the other people ive asked have said that the xv25 is better because it can take support systems and the xv15 couldnt, and now my question is answered! Time to start mowing down my friend's greenskins! >:]
