VX1-0 drones have BS4.5, so they're already pretty good though. This will slow down your shooting phase quite a lot; it also relies on your opponent rolling lots of dice so that slows it down even further.

Also, can you take two same formations?

Or while at it toss missile pods so they can fling a bit of firepower from afar?

It would be nice to have a few tactica for the 7th edition refresh of Tau. If we do put a few together perhaps a mod could create a sticky linking to them?
