having played the demo a while back of fire warrior i noticed the tau dropship fly over head, and i didnt post cos i didnt hav a pic.

here it is from forgeworld http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/orca.htm

we should use that as the tau's troop transport (air)

i dunno, its not quite how i imagined their transport would be, also i thought their air transport was gunna be stealthed and that looks like you couldnt hide it behind a planet

Well, that's what the Tau have buddy - get used to it :)! The Tau don't have effective cloaking technology either; noone has! Only the Eldar and Tau have infantry capable technological camouflage techniques. Still, it's a pretty good lookin' hunk of junk, and it should still be used the way it should be used!

Don't annoy me!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been on this mod longer than you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tau definately have enough technology to stealth a small ship and thats what the original plan was to add.

Moving on, i dont have a problem with that being a heavy duty troop transport but we should definitely have a small stealthed transport skimmer :D :D

im neutral watever u guys want is fine with me, the other tau ship is finished but unskinned, so i dont mind scrapping it or finding it a nother spot, 2 tau dropships would probably be to much, we could always use one of these ships to be used in a generals ability to drop off troops

Thats what im thinking.

The chunky one for heavy duty transport, ie flying through as much defense as it wants

and the small stealthed one for special missions

The small stealthed one is feasible I suppose, regarding it's use is another thing. The Orca is definitely the one to use when supplying a player with reinforcements of any kind - just like in TS with the GDI Transports.

As for the smaller version, it should probably be a player buildable, purty expensive and frail craft. It probably shouldn't have too much in the way of space either!
