    well the best IMHO is the fireknife. plasma missile and multi tracker.

    sometimes a TL fusionblaster and shield gen. to deepstrike and smash viechles.

    i got some spair VX8 suits that i have target lock and TL missile pods. to be the third in my 2x3 XV8 teams.

    Curly wanted to compile them all here, but no one really has the time or patience to gather all the names or name all the unnamed ones.

    Ask yourself why in the world would you trust a win loss record? Playing them yourself is the only way to tell.

    The true joy in the game is playing down to the last model, no matter the odds.

    I normally uses a fireknife for my elite suits and am advanced fireknife on my shas'els

    but a fusion blaster/plasma rifle combo is also good (think it's called helios) I normally uses those for tank hunting
    Dragons do flame.... but only when they are upset or they want to


    According to new signature rules my hydra (the only reason for it to be here was to please Caluin) have been removed. But still dragons pwnz hydras anytime

    The main configs I use are Helios [fusion, plasma], Fireknife [missile pod, plasma], and Aurora [cyclic ion blaster; missile pod] (note: I'm not sure where the name Aurora originated from).

    Anyway, this is taken from T0nkatruckdrive from Tau Online:

    These suit names were developed from the following rough pattern:

    Plasma Rifle: "Knife/Blade"
    Missile Pod: "Fire"
    Fusion Blaster: "Surge/Forge"
    Burst Cannon: "Storm"

    One Weapon Suits: Consists of one twinlinked weapon and a support system (or Flamer) in the third hardpoint

    Sunforge: Twinlinked Fusion Blaster
    Deathrain: Twinlinked Missile Pod
    Burning Eye: Twinlinked Plasma Rifle

    Two Weapon Suits: If one of the weapons is twinlinked, the configuration name will be followed by a number which is the strength of the twinlinked weapon. The Multitracker will then therefore be Hardwired.

    Fireknife: Plasma Rifle + Missile Pod
    Helios: Plasma Rifle + Fusion Blaster
    Bladestorm: Plasma Rifle + Burst Cannon
    Firesurge: Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster
    Firestorm: Missile Pod + Burst Cannon
    Stormsurge: Burst Cannon + Fusion Blaster

    Three Weapon Suits: Consists of three weapons and a Hardwired Multitracker

    Sunfire: Plasma Rifle + Missile Pod + Fusion Blaster




    Here are a few popular examples detailing the way the twinlinking nomenclature works:

    Fireknife-7: [Plasma Rifle, TL Missile Pod, HW Multitracker]
    Fireknife-6: [TL Plasma Rilfe, Missile Pod, HW Multitracker]
    Helios-6: [TL Plasma Rifle, Fusion Blaster, HW Multitracker]
    Firesurge-8: [TL Fusion Blaster, Missile Pod, HW Multitracker]
