No, there is absolutley no difference, though i suppose with the new "True" line of sight rules, the XV15's would be better as they are smaller, making them easier to hide.

it works 2 ways, they are easier to hide, but they have a harder time seeing the enemy also, also with the stealth generator they shouldnt need to hide that much

If your not giving them a fusion blaster or converting get the XV-15's IMO

And there is some fluff stuff about 15s and 25s. But the gaming stuff has been mentioned.

15s are older and preferred by vets due to their smaller size and better maneuverability.

25s have some technology improvements. Can't remember them off my head.

Not at all. The size difference is minescule and should have next to no affect on gameplay. 15's and 25's both get the same equiptment options and stats, the only difference is the XV15's are metal, not plastic.

They work exactly the same as each other. It's easiest to just think of them as different editions of the same model.

15s look like Stealth Models

25s look like Gorrilas.

Voila, all of the differences

XV-25s are good for kitbashing and making Crisis Suits look awesome. ;D
