Default Too Sexy for Binoculars

MEMO FROM SHAS'EL ENOCH

To all Devilfish and Hammerhead Commanders:

Discontinue use of top hatch for visual target confirmation. Many Devilfish and Hammerhead commanders have been killed while acquiring first-hand visual data using binoculars. Use the virtual battlefield system inside the cockpit to increase commander survivability.

[hr]

Seriously now, why do we have people sticking their heads out of vehicles when we are considered one of the most (if not the greatest) technologically advanced races/factions in the Universe? Shouldn't they have some sort of VR battlefield system that is as good (if not better) thn the real thing?

People all know the Tau are technologically advanced... then assume they'll never find anyone smart-enough to use a sensor-scrambler. :

Scanners can be blinded, sensors can be deceived... but visual confirmation is very hard to beat. Even Stealths, Cameleoline or Eldar Holofields cannot do it every time...

I'm somewhat new to the Warhammer Universe, so I am not terribly familiar with the technological capabilities of several factions. I appreciate your colored and logical response.

yep...never rely solely on either electronic aids or the mark 1 eyeball. Use both. If they are telling you the same thing, then you can be 40% sure that it's the truth. If they disagree, you can be 100% sure that you are about to be ambushed.

Or don't stick it out very far. Or use a periscope. Or get the Gue'Vesa to do it.

Oh come on! If someone's going to stick their head out of a tank to get it blown off by snipers, it may as well be the guy with no depth-perception!

Apparently, you've never taken a look at Steeds & Daemonettes of Slaneesh.



"Recording Data..."

Maybe we should get the Kroot to "take a look", or better yet, a vespid, since they are absolutely worthless.

I dispute that claim. Vespid are a very good unit... it's just people don't use them properly.
