Default In a bit of a hard spot, need advice

Hi. I have had my army up to 1500 points, but between a bunch of stuff with dogs eating pieces and bumpy car rides, my 1500 point army has been cut down into a 1250 (Bye bye 6 freaking gun drones, plus some other stuff. NEVER let animals near your 40k things!)

So here's the list

HEADQUARTERS:
Shas'O Ke'lshan Be'limn
>Shield Generator
>Burst Cannon
>Plasma Rifle
>Hard-Wired Multi Tracker


Shas'El T'au Dus'nett
>Plasma Rifle
>Burst Cannon
>Targetting Array
>Hard-Wired Multi Tracker

ELITES:

TROOPS:
Fire Warrior Squad
1 Shas'Ui Team Leader
11 Shas'La
>Pulse Rifles
Bonding Knife
Devilfish Transport
>Disruption Pod
>Target lock
>Multi Tracker
>Targetting Array
>Decoy Launcher


Fire Warrior Squad
1 Shas'Ui Team Leader
8 Shas'la
>Pulse Rifles
Bonding Knife
>Shas'Ui Markerlight
>Shas'Ui Hard-Wired Drone Controller
>2 Marker Drones


FAST ATTACK:
Pirhanna Squardron
2 Pirhanna
2 Fusion Blasters
2 Targetting Arrays
2 Target Locks
2 Decoy Launchers

HEAVY SUPPORT:
Hammerhead Gunship
>Railgun
>Smart Missile System
>Seeker Missile
>Multi Tracker
>Target Lock
>Disruption Pod
>Decoy Launcher


to 1250:

>Stimm Injector (shas'o)

Pirhanna Squadron
1 Pirhanna
Fusion Blaster
Targetting Array
Decoy Launcher
Target Lock

Hammerhead Gunship
>Ion Cannon
>Smart Missle System
>Seeker Missile
>Multi Tracker
>Target Lock
>Disruption Pod
>Decoy Launcher


Anyway, after that do you think I should add a Firewarrior Squad and a devilfish (Costing $70 :-\) or a 6 man XV15 team ($36, IIRC, and I hate the XV25 models so XV15 it is). I'm leaning towards the XV team, since I can always break it into two 3 man teams, and it saves me like $34 bucks. Plus, I'm already painting 20 Firewarriors and it'd be nice for a change of pace.

What's your take?

Thanks in advance.

Stealth's I would go for as I have so much fun with them on the table top. They are bassically infantry killers. I wouldn't bother upgrading to the Fusion Blaster because with the Burstcannon they are much better for putting the shear amount of Dakka down. Factor in a possible BS 4 upgrade and you have a ~250pts squad which will chew up light infantry like there is no tomorrow.

Fluffwise I like stealthy things and Tau ;D

Definitely take the stealths, IMO. They're a great tactical option, and trust me, you want to play with some of the tau elites. Jetpacks are loads of fun. =)

Cool, I was planning to toss in the Targetting Arrays, since the rest of my army is very upgraded. I think like 1/4 of my points is in upgrades

Plus it saves me $34! That's like 3 hours of tutoring, when I can get the business... which isn't often.
