"Some Shas'ui and Shas'vre prefer to fight hand to hand against the enemies of the Tau. They wear the XV20 Assault Battlesuit, one of the most recent developments of the Earth Caste. But the XV20 trades firepower for close combat capabilities, so only the most corageous commanders use them."
This unit was created to reinforce the Close Combat capabilities of the Tau on the battlefield. It takes an Elite choice.
