Possbily. *Perhaps the Tau have learned that SpecOps are essential in warfare and build whole cadres of Stealth Suits to launch serious covert assaults. *

Sounds nice so far....

Thanks you guys, that helped a lot ;D.I've had an idea though. If you had XV8 in a fire warrior squad, would it be a good idea to upgrade them with holographic projector s at (say) 5 pts a modle, as a Special Ops squad?

No, that's what Stealth Teams are for.

There's been some discussion about having smaller suits (XV15 Stealth Suit sizes) for team leaders, but in the end it'll probably never happen (and just make the rules more complex then they need to be).

Yes, the Tau seem to work on a 3 digit system for alot of things, with Crisis and Broadside teams being up to 3 suits large, Stealth teams being between 3 and 6 large and Fire Warriors being between 6 and 12 large.

This isn't a disadvantage as far as I can see.

Stealth Suits generally make a better mobile firebase then Fire Warriors, due to their jetpacks, stealth ablities, superior armour and faster firing weapons. If you could suddenly make Fire Warriors stealthy...no-one would really care much. They'd still be inferior to Stealth suits in that respect, and probably cost far too much. Things are best left alone in that area.

Its XV15 and yes I have noticed and the Pathfinders are 8, kroot 20, drones 8 and so on and so forth. Multiples of 3 or 4. Not a bad way to do it.
