Default Stealth suits support systems

does this mean that in a team of three stealth suits you can have one take a sheild generator, another a target lock, and another a targetting array. and all of them will have the three?? isn't this a bit overpowering. especially in a team of six? i just find it a bit hard to believe. there are even six worthwhile support systems to take. i find it a bit weird

No, that means, If one takes a support system, they all have to take a support system, they can be different though.

i normally take three targeting arrays on the team. It keeps them cheap and boosts their skills! >

3 Stealths with BS 4: 6/9 shots hit. Cost: 120 points.

4 Stealths with BS 3: 6/12 shots hit. Cost: 120 points.

It is the same, though the larger team gives you advantages when you have some spare Markerlights...

I, personally, prefer larger teams, but that`s just me...

And also, If you run out of pointws halfway through your squad, or just want to be thrifty, Take a DC at 0 points down payment ! And then take 2 sheild drones each ;D!

by raw... you cant have drones in your team as they are classed as members.

each team member may select one battlesuit support system. if this option is taken then ALL MEMBERS must do so, though each may select a different system

not that i follow that... just so you know if some rules lawyer comes around... :

Except that, in order to include drones, you have to take a drone contoller.

Which is given to every member of the team.

Then, drones must be bought.

At which point they are added to the unit.



No problems here, IMO.

You can take drones as the are considered wargear and not full squad members.
