Default Calculation question

Ok so in the makings of my army i was looking around for ideas and i saw this posted as an elite unit:

1 Crisis Battlesuit @ 139 pts (Hard-wired Multi-tracker; Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Targeting Array; Crisis Battlesuit; Team Leader)
1 Crisis Battlesuit (Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker)

Now i did the math from what i knew about the calculation system and found that 2 battlesuits(50pts) get 6 total weapons/systems options then anything beyond that is extra so this is what i came up with please correct me:

2 Battlesuits=50pts
+vre upgrade +10pts
Missle Pod;Plasma Rifle; and Targeting array (free from required choices)
hard-wired multi tracker +5pts(Shas vre suit)
Missile Pod; Plasma Rifle; Multi-Tracker (free from required choices)

so it would come to 65 Pts for the unit; now i know i am wrong and it may have quite a bit to do with that i still have reading to do in the main rulebook but i just thought i would ask. Thanks in advance and please note every one my laugh at me as long as they help

Unfortunately, just because the Three choice are required that doesnt make them free you must still pay for every upgrade required or not

This is how it breaks down in detail


Elite: Crisis Battlesuit (2#, 139 pts)
1 Crisis Battlesuit, 77 pts = (base cost 25 + Hard-wired Multi-tracker 5 + Missile Pod 12 + Plasma Rifle 20 + Targeting Array 10 + Team Leader 5)
1 Crisis Battlesuit, 62 pts = (base cost 25 + Missile Pod 12 + Plasma Rifle 20 + Multi-Tracker 5)

ok another calculation, piranhas and broadsides, they have mounted weapons/drones so does the piranha cost 60 or does it cost 88 for the 2 drones and burst cannon?

and does the broadside count as 70 cuz i cant find a cost amount for a railgun?

Ok for the piranhas already come equipped and you don't have to pay fir them, you only have to pay if it is in the options list. If it said it is armed with something it means you already have it and so, don't have to pay for it. Same deal with the broadside, it is already armed with the railgun and SMS when you buy it, so you don't have to pay extra for it.
Hope this helps, sorry if it is a bit hard to read I'm typing on my I pod.

Basically for the cost they come stock as listed but if say you want to replace the broadsides SMS with twin linked plasma rifles that would cost extra plus the broadsides 1 wargear option must be paid for for whatever you add. With pirahna they come as listed and if you say decide to add a disruption pod, seeker missile or some other such thing then those would have to be paid for.
