Default Crisis Suit configurations

Alright, last post made by me today, I'll leave you all in peace.

I'm just wondering what the different named crisis suit configurations actually are and what equipment they use. Calling a squad by its configuration name sounds a lot cooler than just calling it a Crisis team with twin linked plasma rifles and targeting arrays.

Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Some are as follows:

Sunforge: Twinlinked Fusion Blaster
Deathrain: Twinlinked Missile Pod
Burning Eye: Twinlinked Plasma Rifle
Fireknife: Plasma Rifle + Missile Pod
Helios: Plasma Rifle + Fusion Blaster
Bladestorm: Plasma Rifle + Burst Cannon
Firesurge: Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster
Firestorm: Missile Pod + Burst Cannon
Stormsurge: Burst Cannon + Fusion Blaster

This came from T0nkaTruckDriver's post on Refined XV8 Naming Scheme

I do not know how to get links to work just yet :-[

I hope this is what you are looking for.

Two names I've used for custom suits:

Thor/Hellbringer: Airbursting Fragmentation Projector, Twin-Linked flamer
Loki/Summoner: Twin-Linked Missile Pod, Positional Relay

Got a Cookie for whoever can tell me where those names come from.

This is all I could find on it

A quote from VerjigormDeExile:

I don't have the commander battlesuit or the bitz to make a Wisywig Thor. That's what I call the Twin-linked Flamer and AFP Shas'Vre, after the Thor/Hellbringer from the Btech game. It's a close-in heavy mech, and I think the the name works(he brings thunder and FIRE!). But the Thor has been one idea for the pathfinders. But I feel almost chesy using it..


That's right the names are from Mechwarrior Battle Mech's! I should have got that right away... Kodo's to greensmurf

Hellbringer and summoner are mechs from the clasic mechwarrior games. I loved those games. This is the reason I have 3 dreadnoughts in my marine army, 5 sentinels in my armored company, and 16 suits in my tau army.

I really like a modified fireknife config.

MP, PR, and targeting array, I can kill light armor, the PR is good for killing meqs. I take a cut in volume of fire, but I hit a lot more with appropriate fire that can do a lot of damage.

My 2 centavos

There's a reason I included the Clan names as wel las the IS names. Because I didn't want some silly critter making the obvious norse comment. Greensmurf get's the cookie.

The names are from classic battle tech clan omnis, the first is what the innersphere / comstar named them when the clans invaded and the second name is the clan designation. classic battletech came before mechwarrior. and Loki was the name given by Victor Steiner Davion when he first encountered the mech.
