Default XV8 Squad

Hey guys, I was thinking about different Crisis Suit squad setups and I was wondering if this one in particular might prove to be effective:

Shas'ui-
Plasma Gun
Missile Pod
Multi Tracker

Shas'ui-
Plasma Gun
Fusion Blaster
Target Lock

Shas'ui-
Twin Linked Missile Pods
Targeting Array

Thanks!

-Chrisness

No. not all together.
One unit trying to do too much fails.
If you want to kill tanks, set up ALL to kill tanks. ect. ect.
Wow, I have been gone from the Tau board for like 5 months! :O

That is true. Stick to a single specialization.

Does that mean I should swap the Fusion/Plasma out for another plasma/missile pod build? Is the TL MP with Targeting Array a good idea or should I scrap that as well? I am trying to get a well balanced team, not a tank-hunting team. I am leaving the Tank-Hunting up to my Skyray and my Broadsides.

I used something similar in a couple of tourneys...

It is expensive... but allows the team to function multiple ways.

Commander:
Missile Pod
Plasma
Fusion
HW- Multi-tracker

Bodyguard:
TL- Plasma
Missile Pod
HW- Multi-tracker

Bodyguard
TL- Fusion
Missile Pod
HW- Multi-tracker


Yeah, I know the commander can't fire all 3 weapons... but you have the choice of two.

At range you have almost the same firepower as a Full Fireknife team.

Up close...
you can put 2 Fusion hits and 6 Missiles on a vehicle.
or
You can use Plasma and Fusion (+ Missiles) on heavy infantry.

Pricey... but you have lots of options.

I would go with two plasma/missle suits, and one TL missle suit and see how that suit performs. They definently need ot be more specialized than you have now, but I think you could get away with what I've jsut put up. Try it out see how the two kinds perform next to eachother and tweak from there.

Ya, I just changed my Fusion/Plasma to a MP/Plasma, I think this new setup will work.
