"Many Tau Septs have begun to see that they need a strong close combat unit, mainly the newest Sept of Fi'rios. Although Kroot are good for this purpose, they fall easily even to lasguns. Gifted with a new task, the Earth Caste began to make new weapons and Battlesuits for this purpose. Eventfully, they made two new types of gear for the battlefield, the Proton blade & the XV39 Battlesuit. But with the Tau's dislike for close combat, few wished to use the weaponry. Eventfully, the Tau picked out some of the most promising Gue'vesa were picked to man these suits. Thanks to these suits, many battles against the Imperium have been easily won. Few of these suits & weapons have been made and are used only when necessary."

Explosive Blade: The protons in the blade are highly explosive so when they hit against another material, the explode wounding the attacker. To show this, if a unit misses against the suit, roll a D6. On a 4-6, the weapons clash and the protons explode causing a S3 hit with normal saves allowed. However, on a 1-3, the enemy completely misses and nothing happens.
