You were talking about landing orcas then said that, there was no mention of suits, or suit like devices.

They already have those drone controlled battle suits. But then again you may mean something a little less big. It's just more cost affective to put something squishy inside them.

I'm presuming that everything said so far is sarcasm due to the orange text?

Nope it was either this or this. These two colors are the colors that are the most likely to be recognized/seen. I like orange and yellow makes me need to pee and my eyes bleed.

You where also refering to battle suits...anyhow i do not understand why do you think of being ignored. you got the right fluff piece and gave your opinion. Since that is the only fluff piece talking about tau boarding i think people are just giving opinions on how the tau board. That "orca boarding" is just one episode, who knows how they do that most of the time?

Would the basic troopers still wear the same gear if they for example were to board a space hulk?

Without an official GW stance (that I know of) I'd say yes, although for obvious reasons I think carbines would be preferential.
I'd like to imagine a - slightly - heavier kind of armour for the Fire Warriors though
