Default Crisis suits vs. Broadsides

I think V8's are because they can run out of cover and go back in to cover

Broadsides have rail guns and strong armour but cant get out of ememy fire!

There's no comparison - the roles they fill are totally different.

Yeah, they fit completely different roles so they cant be compared.

Braodsides. They've never let me down yet. Crisis suits sometimes do.

They can't really be compared. The fill different roles and take up different slots. Add to that XV8s are variable, as they can take different loadouts etc.

For Versatility - you have the XV8s - able to equip weapons to respond to different threats
On the other hand, you have Reliability - XV88s with Twin Linked Railguns can usually contribute to eliminating big threats.

Though the XV8s can be equipped to be fairly reliable (twin linking) and the XV88s can be equiped to be fairly versatile (Plasma Rifles instead of SMS).

I like Crisis suits. Basically my Broadsides destroy all the enemy tanks in the first turn, and then get minced by lascannons in the second. Crisis suits are more versatile, capable of blowing up most vehicles and all troops.

Fluffwise, Crisis hands down. ( >They have a jetpack! >)
