Battlesuit is a 1+ requirement. Really, unless you are running huge numbers of FW and Crisis suits, stick with battlesuits. THe ethereal's leadership bonus really only comes in handy if you have many, many squads, and cover is scarce.
"I have exactly one-hundred men under my command counting on ME to lead that charge, you two-bit mechanic. I have five seige tanks, eight APC's, an artillery platform and a light mech that need resupply and repair by dusk. I need remote mines set, trenches dug, and my men fed and rested, or those Marines are going to be using us for toothpicks. Get it done, Fio'vre." Officer Sherwin Jackson, 13th Dal'yth Company, to Fio'vre D'nan

Use the Battlesuit. Because you have to - just like firewariors, it's compulsory to have at least one of these. So I guess if you can only afford one, it's a no brainer. Not much else to say, unfortunately.
