Default Pg 24 'character' rules

On page 24 of the Tau Codex, under the heading 'character' it basically says that if you upgrade a member of a unit to a character (like say from a shas'la to a shas'ui) and you want to give a member of that squad a upgrade (like from a markerlight and a pulse carbine to a rail rifle) then you have to give it to a non character model. If this is true then a stealth shas'vre with a fusion blaster would be illegal. I would like some clarification in this area as I have not played for a long while and would like to know if this is still the case in 5th edition. ???

What?

Grenades and pulse carbine are upgrade available to the whole unit at all time. You do not need to upgrade a Fire warrior to shas'ui.

the stealth suit fusion blaster upgrade is in fonction the the number of models in the unit. again yuo do not need to upgrade a unit to shas'vre.

However to have access to the other wargear, you need to upgrade 1 member of the unit 'team leader' and the upgrade/wargear goes to him and him alone, not on another team member.

I think what he's trying to get at is about characters in squads and the squad's weapon upgrades.

This analysis you provide would, if memory serves, seem to be correct. However. I have not seen my codex for a while, and my memory is a bit fuzzy, but it depends on the wording of the unit. If it says something like "Any one model may take a fusion blaster for every three stealthsuits in the unit" then it's ok to give said fusion blaster to a team leader; but if it specifies a stealthsuit, then this is unlikely to be allowed. Which is definately a pity, 'cos I seem to have given my team leader a fusion blaster....

The entry for Stealth Team specifically allows the team leader or Shas'Vre to take the Fusion Blaster.
