Large Island: Tau Ships should be comparable to other imperial ships. Large Island possibly Multi-Continent: Tau Titan killers can go toe-to-toe with Imperium Titans. Large Island: Gunships with powerful Railguns and Missiles that are capable of destroying highly armored vehicles and buildings, even killed Dreadnoughts and Chaos Dreadnoughts.

Skills Stats

Their military primarily focused on pulse based weapons and Railgun types. They possess giant mech suits that carry large weapons, and possess jump packs that can leap from great distances. For navy, they are the lowest of the FTL travel because of their lack of connection to the warp which they don't have means of protection. Their larger battlesuits possess the lifting strength equal to the mass of a planet. And their largest Battlesuits are designed to combat Imperium Titan warmachines, which are one of the finest machines they have built.

Strengths/Pros

Their military's strongest pros is their overwhelming firepower and weaponry system that will launch an overwhelming offensive movement with well coordinated plans based on it's doctrine in two forms. The Kauyon is essentially an ambush, where the enemy is drawn by use of a "lure" into a carefully prepared killing zone. The Mont'ka is a carefully planned attack designed to wipe out critical enemy defenses or units in a single well-placed strike.

Weaknesses/Flaws

They are a race that does not prefer a war of attrition, they also use their Tau main forces to attack from a distance instead of melee. They tend to be naive and tend to be cooperative to others which may lead to betrayals and manipulations.
