Summary Edit

The Tau Empire are relative newcomers to the galaxy, but they have already managed to induct a few different species under their wing like the Kroot, Vespids, and even humans who have left the Imperium behind. Tau technology itself mainly focuses on battlesuits and ion cannon weaponry, but Kroot creatures can be deployed for vicious close quarters combat.

The Tau Empire rely on advanced fire power which means that they can be easily overwhelmed in melee but God help you if you find yourself in their sights.
