Default Escalation and other Tau Flyers?

So, I got to review a copy of Escalation and saw that they lowered the point value for the Tiger Shark AX-1-0 when they allowed it into 40k. But that's the only unit that was detailed. I'd really like to bring a Barracuda or two to the table. IA3 - Second Edition has nicely updated 6th edition stats and rules for all of the flyers, but seeing how the Barracuda wasn't allowed into 4k without adjustment, I'm surprised that Tau didn't get the Shark too. (And I'll admit straight up that the Manta and Orca would be ridiculous in a non-Appocolypse game)

Has anyone seen anything else?

The AX1-0 isn't in the Escalation book, just the standard Tigershark.

The Manta is just silly with its 2000 point cost. Orca seems fun, though.

Isn't the AX 1-0 in now though? I thought FW had allowed a load of their models for escalation now?

Yeah. My local has some phobia of Forge World I'm trying to get rid of, though. If the Revenant Titan is allowed, so should an AX1-0, IMO.
