Crisis Suits are probably the most flexible units in the Tau army and are able to assume many rules on the battlefield. Below are some configurations you can consider for your suit. Note that some configurations work best as a team while others are for a lone suit.



Anti-Infantry Crisis suit

Burst Cannon, Missile Pod, Multi-tracker.
This suit type is ideal for mopping up weaker types of infantry (Guard, Gaunts, Defenders, etc...). Give your Shas'Vre a drone controller with gun drones and you have yourself a team that can fire 12 medium strength shots and 6 fairly strong shots (for taking out light vehicles if desired).

Shas'O Guard

Shield Generator, Drone Controller w/ Shield Drones, Plasma rifle.
Probably a useless configuration but nonetheless a creative one! Add 2 of these as bodyguards to your commander and you probably won't have to worry about him. These guys with the commander could make a good bullet magnet if kept in the front lines and would probably soak up a lot of firepower. 3 of these as a team would be very interesting because now you have a unit that is much more easily sacrificed, albeit a waste of points.

Anti-Light Armour Crisis Suit

Plasma rifle, Missile Pod, Multi Tracker.
A common configuration for most tournament Tau armies, can take out slightly heavier targets then infantry, can also take out some tanks.

Classic, lone tank hunter

Team leader, Twin-linked fusion blaster, Shield generator, Hard wired drone controller, Shield drones
Expensive suit, but hopefully it can get close enough to tanks and blow them away. Although that's best suited for railguns..

Assassin Suit

Plasma Rifle, Fusion Blaster, Multi-tracker, HW Drone Controller with gun drones
This type of suit should be a lone Shas'vre and it is best suited for going behind the enemy lines to kill commanders and artillery.

Anti-Nid suit

Flamer, Burst Cannon, Multi-tracker, and Drone Controller with gun drones for Shas'vre.
A team of these would be a good idea against hordes of gaunts and genestealers. This type of suit is very good for killing many units with low T and Armor Save. However, take only one team of this type and if you take another Crisis Team give them long range weapons to pick off any Nids this team leaves behind.
