Default Krootox Heavy Support?

Hey guys,
I was just wondering where it says the Krootox counts as a heavy support choice. I can't find it the new faq, or the codex. Even army builder says it's a troop choice.
Excuse my ignorance, i'm new to the 40k universe and the Tau

they are no longer a heavy support choice, but are taken as a unit upgrade counting as a troops choice.

its less painful to take them, but they're still not very good.

you're losing something very important by taking them, after all.

i dont mind taking them in a city of death fight seeing how you can use sewer rats to get them out in a nice spot

"But it's rapid fire!" one might say.....Still stinks though. Better things are available.

man, people are all the time bashin on the ox! >
well i'm here to tell you Krootox make excellent fire support.
i use them to support my 3 pathfider snipers (no, i don't any sniper drones yet).
i find the combined firepower at long range can easily knock a SMurf squad down
by a third. and at closer ranges they really help polish off assaulters that have
have been reemed already by my pulse rifles.
bash on 'em all you want, you'll never convince me they suck.
Krootox will always have a place my army.

great speach. i really want to get a couple of them for my showcase and occasionally use them in a game where i go kroot crazy (100 kroot is nothing to laugh at in 1000 points)
