Default Crisis Config Help

This weekend I'm playing a 4 way 2500pt a side city fight. Map will be very large (12 foot by 6 foot) and the other opponents will be a Tank heavy space marine, Tyranid and Ork (possibly with Chaos allies).

My army consists of:

1 Battle Suit Commander

2 Hammerheads
2 Broadsides

2 Gun Drone Squads

4 Full squads of FW mounted in Devil Fish

6 Stealth Suits

2 3 man crisis teams

My Question is how should I arm my stealth suits in order to take on all three oponents.

I was leaning towards one team of MT, FB & PR and one team of MT, MB, PR.

Thanks for any advice

For the stealths I would put on a Targeting Array. Now for the Crisis suits I would go with one squad firenife and the other Helios. So three Fusion, Plasma, MT and three Missile, Plasma, MT.

I should have mentioned that the Stealths all have Targetting and Burst. Along with 2 marker Drones

Each of the vehicles has a seeker missile.

I know the Space Marines are going to have 1 LR, 1 LRC and 2 predators (one A and one D)

The Bug could have up to 3 Carnis and Tyrant. Extended Carapace on all.

Cityfight has lots of cover (as I understand it), so you might benefit from volume of shots instead of quality.

If the things you're shooting at get a good cover save, then beating their regular save with low AP weaponry may not help much. I would maybe recommend trying to cause as many saves as possible.

Burst Cannons - Already can get for cheap on a stealth team, but good when used with another weapon and MT.
CIB - On commander to help make sure as many of the shots hit.

Weapons that negate cover and cause lots of wounds/saves (potentially): AFP and flamers.

Missile Pods might be a good option against some of the higher toughness enemies and light to medium vehicles due to their good range and number of shots.

Take this with a grain of salt because I haven't played cityfight, but quantity over quality is the direction I would lean towards.

Hope this helps,

Edit: Cleaned a few things up.

try using the battlesuit special weapons. one ignores cover completely and the other has a high rate of fire.

I would go for one Squad of Battle suits w/ Missile pods and burst cannons, it's cheap, gives lots of fire and good range.

The other squad I would give Fusion blasters and plasma rifles, for lots of high strength and AP at close range.

2 words "Missile pods" good against swarms and armour, with their 2 strength 7 shots. For the other hardpoints have an anti swarm and cover save negating flamer or the tank busting fusion blaster with a gun slinger enabling multi-tracker.
Gentlemen, it is a nuclear device. TIME IS RUNNING OUT!!
