Nope the Ork Fighter "upgrade" is lost in the new codex and replaced by the preferred enemy rule (against orks).

The conversions are just for fluff.

I believe the old upgrade involved initiative, but this one on the other hand does not. However, it's much cheaper...

Comes with a few other disadvantages too. Frankly, it's worse. Orks WS compared to Tau WS means they hit on the same the Tau hit at: which was the same as before but this time both sides are more likely to hit. Before, I think FS FW's hit before most orks, but now, it's simultaneous barring grenades.

All in all, it's a little worse I think. But from a fluff POV it's even more towards killing the "CC tau" nightmare, and that's sort of a good thing. But it doesn't even give you much of a chance against Orks...

But every one knows that in mecha battles, you're just as likely to use melee weapons as you are to shoot stuff...Mazinger Tomahawk!

Orks are Farsight's perfered enemy we hit them on a 3+. We dont get any stat modifications. Would like to have the option to arm our XV's for hand to hand though, deviating from the traditional Tau Doctrine.

Regular Tau: They are 100 feet away: run for you life!

Farsight: The are 100 feet away: /Picks up powerd glave and gunns the jets
