Okay Static is a slow based force based mostly around "stand an shoot." Static Firewarriors for example do not take Devilfishes. They prefer to walk their way around the board

Mech Tau is a fast based force based mostly on "Fly in Rapid fire em'." Mech Fire warriors for example do use Devilfishes and prefer to hide in the vehicle then deploy right up to the enemy and blast them. Dizzy should give you a link to his Mech Tau website which he referes to as the bible

Mechtau is This

Static Tau is when the FW squads are unmounted and BS are taken
and then there is hybrid, which is a mix, the best hybrids however are mech, w/ a BS usually.

and BTW: I can see this topic getting .......... warm ^-^, lets not, ok?

Static Tau armies are significantly harder to play well than mechanized Tau armies. Static armies have a slight advantage in numbers because they don't need to pay for a lot of Devilfish, but a static squad will probably find it difficult to get in as much firepower as a rapid-firing mechanized squad. Mechanized squads can sometimes waste a turn of shooting getting to where they are going, but that is also a turn where they aren't getting pounded by anti-infantry weapons and they tend to make up for it when they finally arrive.

I tend to prefer a mechanized approach against almost all other armies in 40k, with the possible exception of Tyranids and infantry-exclusive Ork or Imperial Guard armies.
