Now this is something i've been debating with myself for a while, which of the 2 choices is better?
I finally decided that i prefer the stealth suits, heres why...
Greater survivability: Same number of wounds in the two units but one lascannon isn't going to vapourise 1/3 of your unit. <_<
Stealth suits: Added survivability, if you play it right and get between 20-24" away from your target you can hop forward and blast away in relative safety
Weight of fire: Your going to annihilate a squad with 5+ save with ease and you should even cause heavier casualties against marines than crisis suits
Altogether i fell that stealth suits offer a much wider tactical advantage to crisis suits and plush, Stealth suits are just cooler ^_^
Against armies with many 3+ saves (SM, Necron, etc) Crisis work best because of those sweet words: "twin-linked, rapid-fire, suit-compensed plasma". Plus thier suits gives better bonuses.
Against massive number armies (Orks, Tyranids, etc) I would pick Stealth suits.
I definately sugjest stealth suits in any and every Tau army. but you really need crisis aswell. Stealth suits are your all purpose infantry killers, and crisis are basically the Tau dev squads, now if you deciding which to use more of. I'm gunna have to say crisis suits, because 1 full squad of stealth suits are all you really need. just keep them ducking in and out of cover. personally stealth suits are better imo, they cost less money wise, and points wise.
Protect your frailty in a Mechanical body.
Remove your frailty with mobility.
Hide your frailty in a body unseen.
ya do need both but stealth suits are better and cooler

i like crisis suits because they ers large models and look cool but stealth suits are xtremely cool too
I like stealth suits as well 18 str5 shots is gonna kill something. But you do need crisis in your army. It would be kinda kool as an option for the crisis to take a stelth generator for one of its hard points.

I still take a squad of crisis suits with plasma rifles and fusion blasters, hell i used to take 3 squads, but i took out the other 2 suads of crsis suits and replaced them with 2 stealth suit squads
I couldn't chhose which is better. They each are better at what they each do best. I always use bot except for 500 point game. Oh wait, I do then also if you count 1 shas'o and 3-4 stealth.
So don't choose, use them both. if you are short on other "heavy" weapons and need penetration then you must take crisis equipped with the appropriate weapons. If you have all the heavies you need then take more stealth.
well if u have a shas o and bodyguard and stealth suit squad in your army then that should be a good balance.
<insert witty remark here>
i rely on crisis as i often play chaos
Apathy is the greatest enemy of all.
