Default Tau suite configerations (database)

I am going to compile the official configerations for battlesuites, but since TO is so prevelant to Tau fluff- what are yours?

Please list them with maybe a little history (try to link it to canon)

Is a Tau battle suite like a really fancy hotel room full of weapons and tanks?

In regards to Battle SUIT configurations, which is what I'm sure you were asking about there's two that are my clear favorites.

Deathrains

2 Battle suits w/ twin-linked missile pods and flamers. Dedicated long range tank hunters with some close range counter assault/anti infantry punch. They're cheap and wonderful.

Helios

2 Battle suits w/ plasma rifles, fusion guns and multi trackers. They don't earn their keep until the end game, but in a Kauyon style list they can be absolutely devastating to marines. They're also the bane of any foolish deep striking terminators.

Since my Hunter Cadre hails from the Tau'N sept most of their battle suits operate in two many teams. Rarely to I run Mon'ats or a group of three. Actually the only time I run a three man team is when my Fireknife shas'el is accompanied by his two shas'vre bodyguards.

Burning Eye - Three man team with TLPR and Targetting Arrays. Very very reliable, Does a reliable job taking down Marines.
Deathrains - Three man tean with TLMP and Targetting Arrays, great at taking out lightly armored vehicals and basic ground troops.
My Ninja'O - IA, SI, VRT, CIB, PR. Eats everything short of tanks for breakfast.

Sure.

Here are a few configs I've put forward for the XV-81 suit. I really like the 81h Rat Tracker myself, teamed with Deathrain bodyguard with flamers, it's a nasty cityfight unit.

I know you wanted us to link our crisis suit configurations to fluff, but I can't really help in that regard. I just wanted to draw your attention to a singular build of commander that has his own nickname: the 100 point Centurion.

It was, but GW got rid of it because Shas'la's kept stealing the little shampoo's and soaps and the Kroot made a real mess of the mini-bar.
