R'myr no longer has the disruption pod. He has assault plasma, better shield generator, HW drone controller, HW target lock, and flechete

Shield Generators.

the above reasons apply, but lemme give you a BIG reason!

Losing Drones triggers Morale checks for the Suits! this is a LOUSY rule setup that i really cant stand! >

lookit: solo Crisis Suit with 2 drones.... 1 drone dies.. take Morale Check! (you just lost 25% of your squad to shooting: 2 wounds on suit, 2 drones) lose another Drone, Morale check! (50% now!). THEN guess what?? NOW that suit is making Last Man Standing checks for the rest of the game!!! and if he takes a wound after this fiasco, unless hes bonded cant rally!! (below 50%)

this is true. im not making this up. you take morale hits from losing what amounts to WARGEAR... so.. yea.. whew! rant over...

Shield Generators.

That was experimental rules, and not finished ones, now it have something much better than clasic disruption pod.

I'm up in the air about this one. I prefer Shield Gen's for Crisis, since they're more mobile and prevents all of what Calaban just said. For Broadsides, I'd go with drones, just because unless something slips through, you'll want the extra psuedo-wounds, than fail a 4+ save and get the Broadside insta-killed.

Put your drones in cover and guess what...
Wow, an Inv. save, just like a shield drone!
IMO, its better to get cheeper gun drones, and just place the unit in cover, for broadsides anyways. With crisis suits, its a risk jumping into and out of cover, but id prefer the two extra shots.

A flechette is a mini-blade or fragment, sometimes formed shrapnel from an exploding device. Basically, it acts like a razor slicing through the air to inflict damage to whatever it hits.
