Tau XV-19 Flanker Suit Team (Fast Attack)
Name: Flanker Suit 30 Points
WS:2 BS:3 S:4 T:3 W:1 I:2 A:1 Ld:8 Save: 3+
Unit: Consists of 1 to 4 XV-19 Flanker Suits
Weapons: Must have one of the following: a Flamer for +8 points, a Burst Cannon for +12 Points, a Fusion Blaster for +14 points.
Wargear: Must purchase a Target Lock for +10 points, or a Shield Generator for +20 points.
Special Rules: Turbofan Jetpack (Move 12" in the Movement Phase and 3" in the Assault Phase)May always Deep-Strike.
Assault move should be 6", but that could just be a typo.
but why does it have a 3+ save and only T3? it seems the suit would give both 3+ and T4 or it'd just be a 4+ save.
why is it weaker and more expensive than the xv8's?
Apathy is the greatest enemy of all.
The suit stats are basicly the same as a Stealth Suit with increased speed and no Stealth Gen. The 3" Assault move is to lower its usefulness as a pop-up shooter. The speed and short-ranged weapon options counter balance the loss of the Stealth suit.
Its purpose is to be used as bait in a Kauyon or to attack from behind during a Montka.
I think its decent, but what would you use to convert a model?
Engines from a whirlwind attached to a battle suit, tilt it forward on the base
Protect your frailty in a Mechanical body.
Remove your frailty with mobility.
Hide your frailty in a body unseen.
I was think about a battle suit that carried a two markerlights and like 4 or 5 seeker missles, or small drone that you are able to take with your pathfinder that carry two seeker missles(20 poits maybe)

I was thinking about some kinda conversion to a FW squad to have jump-packs and become a FA unit, maybe attach 2 stealth-suit backpacks onto the backs on FW's...
you could use the stealthsuit body shoulder armour and legs but with the arms and heads of FW. you could then convert the guns to bionicarmguns ( a FW can never hold a flamer in his hands, that would be a very dificult conversion) like the SS have.
--for the greater good--
If your gonna do any of this, good luck! Sounds like some *****ing hard conversions!!
