Default Number of HW Systems

For commanders or shas'ui or shas'vre that are allowed to select items from the armory, how many hard wired systems can be used total? Im confused because under the shas'o description it says he can select three hard wired systems from the armory. is this in addition to the multi-tracker, target lock, or drone controller he can get to fill one of his three hard points in his profile? if so, does that effectively mean that he could have two weapons and all four hard-wired systems (one from the profile and three from the armory?) and does that also mean that a shas'vre (say a broadside), could have his tl railgun, smart missiles, multi-tracker, and something from the armory, like a hard wired blacksun filter or hard wired target lock?

Yes.

The hardwired systems are things that aren't represented on the model but are used in addition to whats already there..

And Yes for the sha'vre question as well.

um.. actually its sort of a no to the "all 4 HW systems." The commander can have all 4 systems, BUT only 3 of them are HW, the other has to be shown on the model as one of the Hard Points. Kind of an obsessive point, I know, but I thought it should be clear.

I was under the impression that you had to fill all three "Hard Points" on a Crisis Suit...

you have to fill all three points first, then go on to HW sys. I HATE HW myself but I belive in minimised HQ's all the way, never have I taken a HW sys. and never have I needed one, good old Fireknife Shasél has done me proud.

I hate this whole idea of HDs and HWs. It would seem to me logically that Games Workshop made the HD rule to limit what the Tau 'suits could have, but then they completely contradict themselves by allowing them to have everything with the HW systems??

Logic has just flown out of the window again...

Tau suits are an exception to the norm but i dont mind them..however much you test different combinations of crisis suits the good old fireknife is always the best!
