Default What's some of the new equipment for the Crisis suits?

So far, I've heard of the following...

Cyclical (maybe Cyclonic) Ion Blaster - 5 shot, Str 3 weapon, with "mini-rending", maybe AP 4, probably 18" range

Air Bursting Fragmentation Weapon - Ordinance template weapon. Anybody know any stats?

Vectored Thrusters - Give one suit in the army Hit-and-Run USR.

Targeting Array - Like the Vehicle upgrade.

I have also heard of some sort of command system that allows a suit to share it's Leadership with units within LOS.

Advanced Stabilization System - A Broadside upgrade that gives the suit Slow-and-Purposeful

Anybody know any other tasty rumors?

Iridium armor plates - think XV89 ( I think that's the one) Better save, slower movement.
Ejector system - similar to old IG tank crews, allows you to preserve VPs should your commander bite it.
Failsafe detonator - If, while trying to fall back, a crisis team leader equipped with a failsafe detonator senses that the team will be caught, He will wave goodbye to his squadmates and press The Button. As his Xv8 goes up in bright flames, damaging all nearby enemies, his team members escape, to fight on for the greater good.

Well, I think broadsides will be given an upgrade so they can move and shoot

Ah yes, the Gundam Button. I'm going to have to do a conversion where a Fire Warrior is standing on the opened chest plate of a Crisis Suit holding The Button like Hero did in Mobile Suit: Gundam Wing. Such fond memories of that show...

Learn to shorten your reach! If your foe can come close enough to negate your striking power, all stratagem is lost, and when all stratagem is lost, the battle is lost.

Tell me now, is there a man among you here, is there no one who will stand up and try to fight? Tell me man, is there not one in all your ranks, is there no one who values courage over life?

It does. They get armor saves, but they're probably getting wounded.
