Default Battlesuit...revalation?

I was reading through the 4th Ed Tau codex when I realized the wording for the XV8 battlesuit means it doesn't have to take 2 weapons and 1 support. I'm not going to quote it, but it said 3 weapons OR support. So in theory, I can have 3 of weapon or support, 2 of weapon 1 support, or 2 support 1 weapon.

Has this been covered?

You can even take three support systems, if you really want to.

Err...isn't it self explaintory?

I've always assumed you could have two support choices and only one weapon. Or even take three, but not sure why you would...

Self explanatory, yes, but not common, which is why I brought it up.

Target lock, targeting array, and multi-tracker, for the win. ;D

Wait, did I say that out loud? :shifty:

Positional Relay, Command and Control Node, Shield Generator and Hard Wired Drone Controller with a couple of Gun Drones. Sit the dude in a squad to bring reinforcements in, help nearby squads wth target priority checks and have a couple ablative wounds, I mean floating guns.

Though why anyone would want to put that many points into such a thing beats me, but I suppose it could work if someone really wanted it to.
