The most cutting-edge of the battlesuit technology utilised by the Fire Caste of the Tau Empire, the XV-9 'Hazard' Close Support Armour is an original battlesuit design intended to act as a powerful counter-attack unit and weapons platform. Model designed by Daren Parrwood. Alternate Tau Battlesuits shown for scale purposes only.
The Shas’vre assigned to pilot the XV-9 Battlesuit armour are combat veterans, each a survivor of the deadliest battles against the Greater Good’s most savage foes. The Fire Caste of Ke’lshan has mastered the use of the XV-9, and within this cadre of solemn and determined warriors Shas’o R’alai is a paragon amongst veterans; his skills have been rewarded with the most advanced weapons and equipment produced by the Earth Caste. Model designed by Daren Parrwood.
