Being a flyer you can't be charged at anyway, and being high up and having to move too much means your odds of actually being in supporting fire range is extremely low.
So far I found no reason to invest in any upgrades for the barracuda. Except maybe the CiBs
On a pan-flat table you would have to have a wing almost overhanging your unit for PDTR to work, perhaps I am just lucky that I hardly ever play on tables that boring. With a bit of terrain it is no problem, my infantry spend a lot of time in the upper levels of ruins 6" above ground level.
Good reminder by Vector Strike on the Stalkers, the low cost of the Decoy Launchers could be well worth it if Stalkers are reasonably common in your local area.
