Default Crisis with TW FB + 2 SD, or Broadside with ASS?

I am contemplating which one to put in my 1000 list. I already have a hammerhead, so there's one needed railgun. I would mainly use either one for tank killing. And hopefully, with the SD's, the Crisis suit would be able to last a turn after deepstriking. Maybe even put iridium armor on for that extra time.

Comparison:

Broadside team leader
+Advanced Stabilization System
+Hardwired Multitracker
+Hardwired Drone Controller
+Shield Drone
=105

Crisis Shas'ui
+TW fusion blaster
+Drone controller
+2 Shield drones
=67!

I could almost take 2 for the price of the broaside

Comments, or feedback?

Just because I usually fight fast attack I use long range heavy support like the Broadside so they are nothing but ashes once they get to me. But I don't know who your fighting. If you can get 2 XV8's then do it. Again, I don't know who you fight.

It's more for an all around list. But I guess generally it'd be orcs, 'nids, Marines and IG

That sounds like mostly shooting infantry. Both weapons blow out the same number of shots but Broadside is MUCH longer range, power, and I beleive it has a good save. I'd choose that, but it's only my opinion. Good luck with that choice mate.
