Default outfitting the new Stealth suits

Have any of you tried the option where all Stealth suits must take a support system? If the team leader takes one, does everyone have to take one, or does the rule only apply if a team member (not hte leader) ALSO takes a support system?

And, what options would you prefer if the whole team took a support system? I'm kind of constrained by my bits box at the moment ... I'm thinking something like thiis:
Team leader and one other member equipped w/fusion guns and drone controllers (a markerlight drone)
All other team members take burst cannon and target lock (so they can chew up troops while the fusion guns take on more appropriate targets).
What do you think?

If any model in the squad takes a support system, all must. Note however, that if the Team Leader takes Hard-wired wargear etc, then it is exempt from the rule, as he isn't taking a physical support system on the model, but rather, wargear.

There are plenty of different combos available.. it'll require some pondering on..

OK just looking for some clarification. Do XV15's also get the new option to take a support system?

The way it reads to me is that they do as there is no difference in stats between them and XV25's.

RC ???

Personally, I like the XV15s much more, though I saw an XV25 today, assembled, and it looked pretty cool, much better than in the pics. As there is no difference between the ruleset or stats of the XV15s or XV25s - both have the same options - however XV15s will require some conversion to have them take Fusion Blasters, or to take support systems.

Cheers Mace, I sure I posted on that thread. Sign of getting old I guess, I'm 30 in a few weeks
