A hyper-velocity slug from a railgun would leave two small holes in the penetrated armor of a tank....an entry and an exit. Not to mention the trail of blood, gore, shattered bone, and the internal bitz of the tank strewn for meters from the exit wound. Striking fear into the hearts of infantry and tank commanders alike, the 88 is my fav., fluffwise.

Once those guns are locked on....make your peace w/ the Emperor.

Well, let's see. IF I a a shas' o I would go with;

AN XV-89 with a Shield Generator, Hardwired multitracker, Fusion Blaster, Plasman rifle, and Stimulant injector

But since you said about a shas'ui....so here ya go;

XV-8, PLasma rifle, missile pod, shield generator.

Seeing as how this would be me in a "real life" situation where the rules of warhammer don't apply, I'd take two plasma rifles and take whatever gear I would need to be able to shoot at two seperate targets effectively.

The bonus of drones would be great too just for some added shooting ability and I'd probably use them to look around corners for me and such. A sheild generator would be nice too because who wouldn't want the extra protection?

I'd love Bringing Missle pods and the Cyclic Ion Blaster with a TA or a MT. In real live I imagine the CIB to go crazy on infantry. And for those of you that wanted explosions, the Missle pods have to be the way to bring it. I feel I'd need the Targeting Array though, since I'd rather be focusing on not being shot at, letting the computer do most of the work.

But I'd hope to get to Shas'vre of course so I could take Hardwired drone controller. Floating drones that follow my orders? Bring it on.

I'd have to pilot an 88-2.
Railguns, Shoulder Plasma goodness, built-in A.S.S.
And a Shield Generator. Who doesn't like a crackling blue forcefield protecting you from all incoming fire.

I don`t know; the thrill of firing TL Railguns can, IMO, never compete with the thrill of a high-altitude drop of XV-8s...

So it has to be a Crisis for me. I guess with PR anf either FB or CIB, and 2 Gun Drones (used as backup and meatshield - after all, we`re not talking about gamerules here, but "real life").

I'd have an AX8. My assumption is that that is pretty close to the standard pattern "Hero" class cruisers,

It's always been my impression that a single Kor could fly the cruiser. It'd operate better with a full crew, but only one is essential (the pilot), and even then, the drones might be able to fly it whilst you make a cup of Lapsang Krooton tea...

Well you could deep strike in a xv88.. but i wouldn't expect a nice landing

and it'd have to be the stealth suit, with shield generator for me,

I'd probably want a pirhana with custom-built sheild generator instead (fast, armoured and shooty ;D), but otherwise I'd have an XV8 with sheild gen, pr, flamer, and funky lookin' blades attached to the arms (basically, my own shas'o)

Well If I where to be a Tau Shas'ui (or shas'vre) and be an XV pilot there would actually be 3 suits I'd love to ride.

But If I where to chouse one it would be a Stealth suit (Xv-15 preferably) with bust cannon, markerlight, targetting array, Hw multitracker Hw blacksun filter, HW target lock.

The 2 other potential config I would like would be:
1- a XV-88 broadside with A.S.S. HW Blacksun filter, HW multitracker, HW drone controller with 2 shiled drone.
2- a XV-8 with Plasma rifle, missile pod, fusion blaster with HW multi tracker, HW blacksun filter. Allowing me to go either Fire knife or Helios depending on the situation.
