Title is self explanatory... choose from scouts, cultists, sluggaboys, guardians, guardsmen, builder scrabs, stealthsuits, missionaries, or mandarakes. I say cultists, cuz they can have grenadelaunchers and go invisible...like scouts+guardsmen...

I don't understand why Builder Scarabs are even up their, they don't take unit cap.

I picked stealthsuits because at that point in the game your liable to see more tanks to be annihilated. And they have the ability to jump in and out of situations, making them a great fast-attack squad. If you pair them with Crisis Suits and the Tau Commander for a fast attack you can really do some damage.

Because scarabs are the nec capper unit.

Eitherway, the best one are stealthsuits. SEcond is sisters, and third probably mandrakes.

The others just have a problem cutting it later. Even though the neverending mass of sluggaz can be quite interesting as well.

But considering the fact that guardsmen, cultists, and guardians are all made out of paper mache as far as armor, they really aren't very effective.

^ Not against a good player.

Stealthsuits are at best second after guardsmen.

But even so, I'd say that t4 stealthsuits>t4 commissared guardsmen.

Constant stealth, double jump, basically giant DPS vs veh, vehicle stun grenade, high fire on the move.

You name it, they have it.

Case and point, Stealthsuits are actually useful against T4 units like tanks and they're actually pretty good against turrets, I didn't know that until I jumped a few in with some crisis suits to clean up some enemy defenses.
