So, I love when 40k makes new stuff (even if I don't manage to find the listed rules for it, and I haven't bought new Tau Codex), and am very interested in Commander Longstrike and his smallest-ever? crisis suit. One of the nice things, for me, is that "when is this happening" is practically irrelevant to this game; whatever new stuff they make can be implemented even way back when DW is occurring, perhaps just ignore a name, like Longstrike. I'm not sure how I would stat it, though, so I am asking for some ideas.
I don't know what he does in game, but I presume he increases his tank's BS, like Pask does, and read that he replaces the whole crew. So I was thinking something like this:
XV02 Experimental Pilot Suit
Traits: Auto-stabilized, Dark-sight, Unnatural Strength x2
Armor: 7 All
Exceptional Integrated MIU: Deathwatch, p.178. This should cover his ability to pilot like a boss and the bonus to BS a "tank ace" should have.
I don't know what else, if anything, the suit should have/add. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
