Default Tau the next building step

Hello all, Looking for the next unit to build for my army. This is what I have built so far.

1) XV84 Commander w/ PR MP
2) 2 Deathrains
3) 1 Sunforge
4) 6 Stealth Suits w/ BC
5) 2 FW Sqds
6) 2 Tetras
7) 3 Gundrone Sqds
8) 1 Pathfinder w/ Warfish
9) 2 HH w/ RG or Ion
10) 2 Sniper Drone Teams

These are the items that I have on hand and to build yet.

1) 22 Kroot
2) 2 Tetras
3) 3 Devilfish
4) 1 HH
5) 2 Piranha
6) 1 Commander w/ TLPR
7) 1 Broadside w/ TLPR
8) 3 Fire Warrior Sqds
9) 3 Stealth Suits

The items I'm leaning toward building.

1st choice being the two Piranha's for their rear striking ability.
2nd choice being the Devilfish so I can FOF or readjust my fire base.
3rd choice being the Kroot for their shooting and infiltrate ability.

I know that there are plus's for every unit stated above, but would like to get the biggest compliment based on the advantage's and disadvantage's based on the core army that I have built so far.

I think what you should do is figure out an army list containing what you've built so far, and add some other units in to get it to a certain point value for the games you want to play at the moment - then you can figure out easily what needs to be built. Otherwise if you're not in a hurry to play any games or anything, just build it all =)

Devilfishes are my guess to what will be most usefull...

You have enough AT power, and decent AI power. The only thing you need is tactical flexibility. Which devilfishes give. Then id say a hammerhead more so you can have Rail and Ion.
Then something fast moving... But your drones can do that with Deep Strike...

Just my two cents
