Default New Battlesuits

Will there be any new battlesuits (besides XV-25) in the forthcoming codex Tau Empire ???

There will be a commander upgrade sprue for the Crisis suit containing special issue weapons and equipment, and a Special Character battlesuit, but that is all we know of. Check out the Rumours forum for a more complete report.

The Commander will be getting a triple barrelled plasma gun and also an ion rifle of sorts making him stand out from the current suit upgrades.

As for the other suits, stealths will be getting the option for fusion upgrades (probably a minority of the unit thing)

Hopefully a few tweaks will be made too, i'd love to see BS 4, highly trained army trhat only specialises in shooting, surely they'd have a higher than average BS?

first, it's not a plasma gun. second, tau avoiding close combat does not mean the specialize in shooting...they specialize in not getting charged...leave it at that.

Still, thats my particular feelings.

Well, not a 3-barreled plasma rifle, either (I assumed you meant rifle). It's not a heavy 3 or assault 3 weapon with plasma rifle strength, range, and AP.

He might be talking about O'Rmyr's double barrelled plasma rifle, which is forge world and has been out a while.

We are only getting two other new weapons, neither of which is plasma or triple barrelled. One is the ion, the other is a blast/shotgun/anti-horde type weapon (yeah thanks, we needed that...) Although, to be fair, I have in the past noted that Tau have very few blast weapons.
