Default A battlesuit question

Good day,
How do you people think a tau sits in the battlesuit.
Is his head in the helmet, or is the entire body of the tau in the square space in the suit?
Are there any links, or books I can read to read about it ? Or any pictures that I can see?

I'm pretty certain they sit in the chest cavity, head about where the 'vision slit' at the top center of the chest is. Now, whether hes wired up directly to a mind-link kinda setup, or stares at a computer monitor and controls things mechwarrior-style, thats up for debate...

and if it looks like the Firewarrior model wont fit, keep in mind the suits (and all larger models, from tanks to monoliths) are not truly to scale. A crisis suit actually stands about a full 3 times the height of a Firewarrior, for reference.

There IS a pic somewhere, (I cant find it though) of a Crisis suit in a mechanics bay, chest section laying on the floor, and a firewarrior sitting in it on some Golden Demon award on the GW website.... but I dont like it much... due to the 'out of scale' para. above.

And there's already being a thread about this a while back. Give it a search.
