[gal_img]1425[/gal_img][gal_img]1427[/gal_img]The Tau Pacu is a long ranged fighter for tank hunting.

Under the guidance of Commander Shas'O Mesme' Vre the Earth Caste was instructed to build upon the Devilfish's chassis to be able to Lift twice the amount of weight so it could carry twice the amount of gear, armour, troops and carry twice the fire power. But had to be Tau so had to stay light enough and nimble enough.

With extra thrusters which where mounted upside down for a more stable and be more of a violent vehicle and improve hover abilities to be able to shoot large amounts of fire power at the enemy. Plus the extra thrusters and wings where added to the front and side pods removed the weight capacity was nearly doubled and the speed was also increased to a minimal degree.

This improvement made it possible to carry the extra weight of lots of extra fire power. The Pacu can have almost any wing mounted weapon combos that the fighter pilot and gunner could want. The armour was also improving some but not enough to take away all the added benefits the new engines and wings afforded it.

But then the Earth Caste was requested to improve the gunner's ability to be able to see and track targets faster and more reliable. This was also done by adding a gun turret to the top of the hammerhead where the gunner was located out side to see and track with no interference.

The thrusters had no problem lifting the turret and the weight. The Earth Caste where able to add twin linked Broadside Rail Guns to the Turret. And 4 wing mounted pods which can carry any of the Tau's Twin linked Crisis Suits weapons. Plus the original burst cannon is still in the nose cone.

This extra fire power and power and ammo take up a good amount of room inside the ship but still afford enough room for 8 Fire Warriors to travel inside.

This ship was dubbed "The Pacu" for its hungry appetite and rolls in taking the battle to the enemy and attacking targets much larger than itself. When the enemy was pounded until nothing was left the team of Fire Warriors would deploy and quickly wipe out anything if at all left.

The "Pacu" is not massed produced and is a rare site and at this moment it is pretty clear the imperium has yet to even encounter one.

The poor Orks and Tyranids have met there deaths at its hands many of times.

This long range fighter and troop transporter is a mobile army in its own rights.

Shas'o Mesme' Vre has ordered immediate building of this model after such great victories in the battle field proving itself time and again.





The Pacu ship was built using four jets from the hammerhead and four wings from the hammerhead also. Then I mounted them in the front and back and mounted the wings onto the jets. The jets are mounted upside down to look different and I mounted the wings in the correct direction. Pick the drones weapons of your choice.

Then as an added detail, I used the Eldar cockpit from the wave serpent as my gunner's compartment and also added rail guns and a Tau fire warriror inside as the gunner of the ship.
