You mis-spelled PanO, and those are Yu Jing models. You need to go back and be more careful next time you order your PanO, sometimes they do that.

Personally I appreciate the 'Dead Pool' ninjas, but I am not a fan of the color scheme when placed beside the rest of your army. Dead Pool is awesome, but they just don't look like they fit.
Also, don't abuse your Domaru, they are heavy lifters in the Yu Jing.
Nevar wrote:Aragato are amazing models and do well on the battle field. They just require an army built with them in mind. You don't normally just throw in an Aragato without some background thought into their role.
Unless you are the Aleph and you have Penthesilea... she is unbelievably good at taking down anything on the board so long as you can avoid too much ARO. One hit kills on TAGs even.

In PanO I have a drone that can fire guided missiles with the help of forward observers, and he is useful but situational.
Yu Jing has a 360 degree visor Total Reaction bot, which can be a huge pain in the enemy's rear if placed well. And he has a HMG.

All remotes also act as repeaters, so if you are wanting to include hacking as any kind of primary strategy than they are always good. Hackers can use the remotes as the 'source' of their hacking remotely.
Finally the Jap Sectorial has access to the same trick the PanO has in the Yao Kongs, more specifically the Son-Bae. It's guided missile launcher is effectively a guided missile strike any forward observer can call in Seeker Missile style that causes huge damage in a blast. The Son-Bae can even remain tucked quietly out of sight and keep firing so long as forward observers are marking targets.
That strategy is also viable because the ITS included Forward Observers in the 'specialist troop' category making your spotters also objective grabbers.
The downside of remotes, is you need engineers to repair them instead of medics. This might not be an issue for the Yu Jing, but PanO has all of one engineer choice. =P

Chain rifles are awesome, and Domaru are good at close range and melee, but they are slow and the slug shots from the boarding shot gun gives you ranged threat, and still retains the template goodness once you start using the shotgun rounds at closer range. It's just a lot more usable and my Domaru have always done well with the boarding shotgun while my chain rifle domaru is often a hit or miss depending on if I could close.
