Default Battlesuit Commander Model

I'mim just getting started really and i have been digging and trying to find the answer to the question thus far and come up empty so i just give up and ask. if i missed the info some place please tell me where . anyway im looking at the vx8's and the battlesuit commander models. from the images i have found it seems the only thing i can find different between the 2 is the head. is there more differences that i am not seeing? anyway any info on the actual differences in the models would be nice thanks.

Well I sopose not to much excetption of that I think they get a metal bit weapon that no other boxes or models come with i think it was the Air Burst Or Cylic Ion one of the two. I'll post more in a bit.

Like if a few Tau went off and they were found and brainwashed and what not. Then, they are made into Tau Marine things. That would be crazy. "And they shall know no close combat skills"~ Xv15 Stealth

Like stated, the Commander Battlesuit comes with a few extra modelling peices in its boxed set. It comes with three heads, one the normal XV8 head, the other two metal heads with extra features that could be easily used in place of Targetting Arrays, and that such. Then there are the two metal weapon pieces that come in the boxed set as well, called the Airbursting Fragmentation Launcher, and the Cyclic Ion Blaster.

In addition to what everyone else has said, the commander set also comes with the bit for the Command & Control node.

The commander differs from the regular XV8 box in a few ways. The commander comes with:

Both XV8 Crisis Sprues
Metal Cyclic Ion Blaster
Metal Airbursting Fragmentation Projector
x2 Metal Crisis Suit Heads
x2 Crisis Suit support systems (Command and Control Node and Positional Relay)

The commander does not have the Gun Drones that come with regular XV8 suits.
