The XV26 Maller support suit is a weapons platform based on the XV25 Stealth suit, meant for fire support on infantry group level.
The earth caste have replaced the jet pack and stealth field of the XV25 with further cooling and stabilizing systems, thus enabling the suit to carry heavier arments and support systems.
The removal of stealth field and jet pack is ensuring that the XV26 is easier and less costly to make, compared to the XV25.
The XV26 got the same stats as a XV25, though it can't use stealth field or jet pack and don't have the deepstrike special rule.
You can take a XV26 for every 5 Firewarrior infantry (5 shas'la and a XV26 is enough for a single troop choice).
The XV26 can be equiped with either a drone controler or a markerlight and can equip one of the following weaponssystems:
Rail Rifle (having heavy2, pinning. Made possible by the extra cooling systems)
When I get home to my dex I will make a points cost list.
Thats it for now, what do -you- think?
