we don't know the rules for the new FW suits yet.
Tetras look pretty solid.
Pirahna's dont really have a use.
Neither do the new Hammerhead tanks. ironically, in the fluff, the "new" turrets for the hammerheads were the original systems they were equipped with when the tau got into space for the first time!
And I'm not really gone on anything else there- sure it looks cool and all, but I wont be putting them in my list!

only against hoard armies and then just because it suits your fancy to do so. A hammerhead is just as effect, more so at range, much tougher to kill, and only slightly more expensive. The only advantage HGDs have is that they can have markerlights and the enemy may ignore them, thinking they are no more threatening than normal drones. Otherwise they are just an oddity thing that you use for fun not to win. It takes up a HS slot and those are too precious for hammerheads and broadsides.

off the top of my head, it costs 80ish points, or something. Can someone correct me? So, for 80 points, i lose out on a troops choice, and get an AV11 thing with a fusion. I really don't think its worth it.

Tetra are really cool, cheap, and fast attack. A lot of people don't bother with fast attack selections in Tau, so it fits in just nicely and reflects the cost of landspeeders so it's easy to digest. Plus their abilities are great. For a cheap price we can get a very useful tool that moves very fast. If anything, it's an incredibly fast objective holder

Dude, I don't know what you're smoking. The plasma cannon turret has an amazing statline, two strength 7 shots with AP 2 and they are both twinlinked? The only downside is you only get two shots but they are much higher quality than Ion cannon shots and more likely to hit.
