Default deathrain/monat/fireknife etc

what exactly do these terms mean? i've figured deathrain and monat is some kind of suit, but is it a slang term for a specific set-up or tactic or what? and fireknife? or something along those lines? i dont recall reading anything about these things in the codex (old one mind)

Default Re: deathrain/monat/fireknife etc

These are (mostly) specific terms for various crisis weapon loadouts. For an exhaustive explanation, either visit the Guide to Mech Tau, at http://www-personal.engin.umich.edu/...isConfigs.html.

In a nutshell,

Monat- A single crisis suit.

Deathrain - crisis suit configured with twinlinked missle pods.

Fireknife - crisis suit configured with plasma rifle/missle pod.

The only element in this universe more common than Hydrogen is Stupidity!

Friendly fire, isn't...

The diversionary attack you are ignoring is the enemy's main assault!

The 5 second fuses on grenades are all actually 3 seconds.
