Default crisis combo names

do we have identifiers for TL burst cannons, flamers, TL flamers, the CIB, and the ABFP? If not, I propose:

TL burst cannon: Hailstorm
CIB: thunder
ABFP: shock
flamer: blade (plasma doesn't use it)
TL flamer: Shining Lance

thanks a lot guys

And how do you intend to translate these into Tau? That's even more important, is it not? Maybe start with the Tau names we've got at hands

A single flamer doesn't add anything, as it generally isn't vital to the suit's function (ie. Deathrain w/ flamers are pretty much the same tactically as Deathrain w/ target lock).

Twin linked flamers are Heatwave I believe.

We've never actually had Tau names for the configs, but just designations like fireknife, etc. Go read Tonka's article about XV8 naming conventions in Important Topics. I was just expanding on that.

Cheers!

Plasma Rifle: "Knife/Blade"
Missile Pod: "Fire"
Fusion Blaster: "Surge/Forge"
Burst Cannon: "Storm"

One Weapon Suits: Consists of one twinlinked weapon and a support system (or Flamer) in the third hardpoint

Sunforge: Twinlinked Fusion Blaster
Deathrain: Twinlinked Missile Pod
Burning Eye: Twinlinked Plasma Rifle

Two Weapon Suits: If one of the weapons is twinlinked, the configuration name will be followed by a number which is the strength of the twinlinked weapon. The Multitracker will then therefore be Hardwired.

Fireknife: Plasma Rifle + Missile Pod
Helios: Plasma Rifle + Fusion Blaster
Bladestorm: Plasma Rifle + Burst Cannon
Firesurge: Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster
Firestorm: Missile Pod + Burst Cannon
Stormsurge: Burst Cannon + Fusion Blaster

Three Weapon Suits: Consists of three weapons and a Hardwired Multitracker

Sunfire: Plasma Rifle + Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster

I generally associate the CIB with Lightening or Electricity, since that's what Ions are. So I propose:

CIB + Plasma Rifle: Electric Blade (although Aurora seems to be popular already)

CIB + Missile Pod: Lightening Strike (Se'Hen Ka)

CIB + Fusion: Shockforge

CIB + Burst Cannon: Lightening Storm

AFL should be classified by "Thunder" or "Wind" making:

AFL + Plasma Rifle: Thundersword

AFL + Missile Pod: Firewind

AFL + Fusion: Thunderforge

AFL + Burst Cannon: Thunderstorm

And the Grandaddy 3-weapon suit...AFL + CIB + Burst Cannon: SuperCell

No, when you twin-link Flamers then you get to re-roll wounds.

Which is better than a heavy flamer! Haha!

The cityfighting monster is TL Flamer and AFL. Toast'n'roast!
