    HW systems

    When a friend of mine started playing Tau some time ago, he was always talking about "HW shield generators". But that's not possible right?

    Actually Tau do have HW SG but as far as I know its only Aun'Shi who has one. You cant have them as an option for normal Tau, normal shield gens are only available as options on XV8 and XV88 Battlesuits(plus the ones from Forge world)

    Rikimaru pretty much hit the nail right on the head. Maybe in the new Tau Codex/Update though.

    So, just for clarification: no.

    The only exception, as said, is the special character Aun'shi, and it's probably only hard-wired because he doesn't have a Battlesuit to fill a hardpoint up. ^_^

    To hot-wire a car means to start it without using a key. Any car built before the use of variable resistance keys can be hot wired. A thief simply takes the starter wires and put them together, as a sort of "Mock-Key" and the car will run. This problem was solved after auto manufacturers started using keys that had a resistance to them. The car had a ohmmeter that measured the resistance and if it wasn't sastisfactory then the car would not start. Therefore hot-wiring a new automobile is close to impossible

    On the other hand, Hard-wired systems can be found a couple of pages before the actual statlines start. I believe that the Multitracker, Target-Lock, Drone-Controller can be hard-wired. I may be missing one though.

    A Hard-wired system is like a non-hardwired one, except it doesn't take up a hard-point. This makes it possible to have a Helios 6 suit for example, with a TL-Plasma Rifle, fusion blaster and a HW-Multitracker

    Dreams give us a vision of a world unlike any we have seen. They present us with a glimpse of a better life; a goal to aspire to, and in the face of insurmountable odds, they provide us with the power to overcome, to live on, and to succeed where we would have otherwise failed.

    Specifically, hard-wired systems are cybernetic, built into the Tau themselves. Tau got those cuz they're all inventy, yo. They even UNDERSTAND the crap they build, whoa.
