Equipping Space marine tac. squad

Are their any major differences from 4th to 5th about what kind and how many special weapons each squad may have? and if what weapons do you recommend?

Not really, instead of taking a plasma i take a flamer much more often now, but for the heavy it still is either a rocket launcher or a heavy bolter

For heavy anti-horde firepower, the choices seem a little cheaper, and would probably reflect so, but, for pure power and anti-tank, there is little real difference.

well the changes are: plasmaguns are more expensive, blasts are better, templates are better, and plasmacannons are cheaper while heavy bolters and lascannons are more.

i like meltas and plascannons best, but flamer and missile launcher can't go wrong.
