Default Suit configuration names? What do they mean?

Reading through a lot of reports and examples of lists, I see mentions of things like "Fireknife config" or "Monat config" or "Deathwind config". What do all these mean? I've been looking through the Tau Codex but I haven't seen any example of what they are. Is there an online FAQ or something that addresses this? It would help a lot when trying to come up with a list of my own if I knew what some of these configs meant.

Here's a good one, but there are more. Delve into the FAQs and you should be able to turn up more info.

It's just a short hand way of writing the crisis configs.

Here is the thread where the suit combos are located.

Google it. Different words like death and rain mean different weapons. Fire is plasma, for example. The dudes link above may help. Otherwise: http://www-personal.engin.umich.edu/...isConfigs.html

Oh, okay, thanks guys I appreciate it. Was getting really bothered reading all these reports talking about what suit was better than this other suit when fighting this guy, and it was hard to make sense of it when I had no idea what they were talking about.

Should make this a lot easier.

There's a few new systems nowadays though... CIB and AFP, just, not sure what they're being called... CIB/Plasma I usually call ionknife but its probably semi-officially something else.

no idea for the AFP. one would think that was way more deathrain than the deathrains..

I think that CIB/PR is Aurora... Not sure though. Perhaps the lists need to be updated.

Not sure what AFP is, but I noticed that none of the patterns included the Cyclic Ion Blaster, which I thought was a bit odd. Perhaps now that I've brought the question up we can address unnamed suits and give them names?

Might as well get some use out of my stupid questions.
