Default Questions on Crisis Suit Layout

Dear All,

First I'm very new to playing 40k and the Tau are my first army.

OK I assume this question is silly but I thought about posting it anyway.

I have read my Codex a few times so either I'm retarded, can't read or it didn't clarify it for me.

Can Crisis suit have 2 twin linked weapon systems? Since that would equal 4 weapons buy only 2 weapon types.

Example: Deathrain

XV8 Crisis Suit - Shas'o

Twin Linked MP
Twin Linked PR
Hard point MT
HW Drone Controller
2 Shield Drones

I must admit, I have never seen this configuration in any Battle list that I have looked at so I'm sure this doesn't fly

Unfortunately, Crisis Suits are limited to 3 hardpoints. Each of the weapons (weapon, not weapon type) takes one, so you would have a total of 4 with that setup. :-\

In practice, it probably isn't worth twin-linking weapons on your commander anyway. The difference in accuracy is much smaller than for a normal Crisis suit, but you pay the same price.
