Default XV25 Stealths

I've done a quick search and couldn't find this mentioned before, so forgive me if I'm repeating info but...

In the new WD there is a full page Tau Empires preview in the 'news' section. There's a decent shot of the new XV25s, which I must admit look pretty cool. They are accompanied by the statement- 'the new XV25s can take a Battlesuit support system'.
I can't imagine anyone wanting shield generators for their stealths, but a Drone controller and 2 gun drones each, all benefitting from the stealth field, may be something to consider.

Ah, Thanks for the info! Which edition/month/issue of WD is this by the way? I assume it's the January UK Edition?

So you could have 6 stealth + 12 drones all with stealth field?
It would be so cool!
Even get +1 Bs for 5 pts will be worth considering >

No Probs! It's WD313 January UK Edition. Hmm, I hadn't thought about the BS hike, tempting....

Yeah, 6 stealths with 12 drones would be a real pain >

It also mentions the Skyray and Piranha coming as plastic kits. Piranhas working in squads of up to 5. It has pics of the new stealths, the sniper drones and shadowsun with the assorted drones that accompany her. That's it I'm afraid, just enough to whet my appetite even further, but without much info- no release date mentioned either.
I have a subscription, so the issues tend to arrive around a week before the release date, which is nice

Piranha's are armed with burst cannons right, or was it fusion blasters? Anyway these should prove interesting to use as counter for those annoying assualt cannon landspeeders out there..

I will order 5 right now ;D

Either or. They have a burst cannon and pair of gun drones standard but can upgrade the BC to a Fusion Blaster unless I am much mistaken. Speedy anti tank anyone?

I would love plastic piranha kits... if thats happens my mechanized army is deffinetly going to have a swarm of smaller crafts around the tanks when the new codex comes out. Im all a quiver with anticipation, hehe.

I really wanted to try Piranhas but I couldn't quite bring myself to pay the Forgeworld prices, plastic kits though... ;D

In the article it mentions that due to 'advances in plastic manufacturing' they can produce some of the FW items as plastic kits, specifically, piranhas and skyray. I'd love for them to do Tetras too, but I suppose you can't have everything.
