Default [Request] Tau - Shadowsun in 6th edition

With the new edition it seems as though Commander Shadowsun has gone from an overpriced morale booster to a sneaky tank hunting monster. +3 to her cover save, 4+ invuln for her and her shield drones, and 2 BS5 Fusion Blasters that can target 2 different tanks at once.

What are your guy's thought's on this?

now a good HQ?
still too pricey?
too short ranged?
too much anti tank in the rest of the army?
other?

Moved from Tau Tactica articles due to not being a tactica article.

So who can help Cattlebruiser out? I've only even seen Tau fielded twice...

I'd say she is still too pricey for anything under 2000pts, maybe in a 1850.

however this brings up a question, in the FAQ for target locks it says "This piece of wargear no longer has any effect", so that means splitting fire with crisis suits is gone, but Shadowsuns wargear states that it is an ADVANCED target lock. So does this mean her target lock still has effect?

As of the FAQ you can still shoot at 2 different targets with Shadowsun.
