Tau Fleet Equipment
Tau Shields are based on the gravitic sheath around the ship. It can be reformed to deflect incoming fire.
Deflectors are special versions of the gravitic sheaths often fitted to the front of Tau vessels. The gravitic sheath is turned into a dense wedge which is far more effective at repelling incoming ordnance.
Tau Tracking Systems are located on Skether'qan Class Escorts (Messengers) and are incredibly powerful. They can also be linked in with other ships' computers, allowing them to provide additional data for weapons batteries and turrets. This makes it more likely that nearby Tau ships will hit with their weapons.
