Default Special Units

Does the Tau have a special forces unit?

Tau are not humans, and do not structure their military the same way as todays US military, so no. However, what exactly do you mean by special forces units though? The closest thing I could think of would be stealth suits.

Do you need to know for a story that you are writing, or is it for game play?

I would suggest doing a combat patrol scenario using stealth suits, Devilfish mounted fire warriors, and a couple XV8s. Here is a link to the rules for combat patrols. http://uk.games-workshop.com/warhamm...40k40mins1.pdf

mabie it's just me, but i always pictured the tau having a stealth-type strike force that comprised of modified devilfishes and crisis suits that have stealth field generators, along with stealth suit squads and sniper drone squads.

but, that's just me...

God damn it not again. do NOT make a SPEC FORCES SUPER DUPER TROOPER SPEC OPS STEALTH SPANDEX WEARING cadre. It is the most over used theme in all of game history.

If you want to play a combat patrol every once in a while that's cool, but please man... for the greater good...
