Tau XV-96 Smart Battlesuit Team

XV-96 Smart Battlesuits were introduced to add mobile fire support to Tau armies in difficult situations where neither XV-88 Broadside Battlesuits nor the Hammerhead Gunships were useful. These units were adapted for difficult situations where they were used as a mobile support weapons, offering heavy fire support wherever they were needed across the battlefield.
The Smart Battlesuits lack the firepower of the Broadside Battlesuits due to their ability to utilise a Jetpack, enabling them to offer fire support anywhere. This was only made possible through minimising armour and support systems so the battlesuit could cope with the heavy weaponry.
Even in positions where no enemies could be seen due to their Smart Missile Systems. This made Smart Battlesuit Teams extremely efficient on difficult situations where extra mobility was required.

The following army list entry may be taken in Tau armies, occupying one Heavy Support choice on the Force Organisation Chart.
