Default Can I do this with my Battlesuits?

I was looking through the Tau codex in the battlesuit wargear section and I think I might have come across a flaw.

The codex states that a battlesuit can't take the same piece of equipment twice. However, does the regular Drone controller and the hardwired drone controller count as the same thing?

My thinking is it wouldn't because technically they are different. If I can take both of them that means 4 shield drones for my commander!

Unfortunately no, Whether they are 'hardpoint' or 'hardwired' a Drone controller (as well as target lock, multitracker, etc) is still the same thing.

Therefore you cannot have 2 drone controller on your suit.

The only wargear that can be 'doubled' are the drones.

Lets say you have a 3 squad team of death rains, could you give them all a drone controller has there 3 system and give each 1 2 drones, for a total of 6 in the squad?

It's even more popular among Broadsides because it gives them a lot more resilience with 4-6 shield drones per 2-3 man team. Crisis suits should be able to use JSJ to avoid most incoming fire, but Broadsides lack that luxury.

I dont think you would really need 4 shield drones for your Commander. If your opponent is pouring that much fire into him, they arent very bright. Unless they have that much fire power to spare.

For those 60 points of shield drones, you could buy another crisis. More fire power, and more redundancy. If your opponents hate him that much, and waste that much fire power, he has done his duty. (Although I can agree with any sentimental feelings, every time my commander gets shot down, I die a little inside )

Those things only scar me. Watching your commander explode (only in your head of course, but still...) is the worst thing. Even if it was worth it.
