Suddenly appearing, as if stepping out from nowhere, a Stealth Team unleashes a hail of gunfire to cripple or eliminate their selected targets. The key to Stealth Teams is the technology behind their XV1 5 and XV25 Stealth battlesuits. Only slightly more bulky than the armour worn by Fire Warriors, these 'Stealth suits' have integral stealth field generators that project from nodes situated about the body armour. They surround their bearer with a distortion effect that plays havoc with a full spectrum of light and confounds other detection devices, allowing warriors wearing such armour to move untracked, blending in with their surrounding environment.
By infiltrating the battlefield, they can also activate homing beacons or positional relays - bringing reinforcements to the fray with greater precision. Some teams also carry a few rail rifles - especially useful against power armoured infantry. An even more recent addition to the Pathfinder's arsenal is the ion rifle. Able to fire in two distinct modes, the ion rifle can vaporise light vehicles, but is unstable when J overcharged. Many Pathfinder shas'uis employ drones, and in the Third Sphere Expansion, new variants specially designed to assist Pathfinder Teams have been developed.
For some, this is a practical realisation that the tactical versatility required by Crisis or Stealth Teams eludes them; for others, it is simply a preference to remain squarely situated with the heart of any Tau gunline. Fire blades are the most grizzled and seasoned Fire Warriors of their cadre, whose skill at the Fire Warrior's art of battle leads them to eschew battlesuit technology. They are excellent field leaders and their long experience has taught them exactly where to place shots to maximise damage.
