Default Kill team quick question

What would you think is better in a kill team scenario

6 stealth suits w/2 fusion blasters

3 Crisis suits

what would this team potentially going up against, and what are the suits outfitted with? as in, is there a points cap? for me personally I tend to roll very low, so twin linked and shield drones tend to keep my suits somewhat active but that is expensive and maybe not necessary

Kill team is 200 points each model is an individual unit you can have 1 elite 2 troop and 1 fast attack. No Vech no special characters. normally going up against SM

The rules specifically state no Crisis suits.

This is because Crisis teams are noisy. The servos in their armour aren't exactly silent, and their thrusters aren't as shrouded as those in the stealth armour. It's not easy to sneak up on someone when you're twice the height of a man and your jetpack is screaming like a banshee.

i think stealth suits are better for this
you got a lot of firepower and the banes of stealth suits (big dudes like 'naughts) arent there
they can perform good against anything

From other people's stories and battle reports, killteam is one of the few things Vespids excel at. I'm told they're awesome at it.

oooh forgot them lawl
vespies are indeed great at kill teaming mainly because of their very powerfull guns
at kill teams the short range doesnt matter
and they are fast silent killers
great kill team
and against SM the ap3 is priceless

If a Crisis suit is too loud, then a Dreadnought certainly isn't sneaking anywhere.
