Tau vehicles designed with the Vehicle Design Rules are allowed to take additional vehicle upgrades. These upgrades are listed below.
Ethereal Command Vehicle...........30 points
The vehicle is a command vehicle for an Ethereal, which must be purchased separately as part of the Tau army. An Ethereal Control Vehicle extends the range of the Ethereal's Inspiring Presence to 24" while he is inside the vehicle. However, if the vehicle is destroyed while the Ethereal is inside, then all units required to make a Morale test because of the Price of Failure rule must do so with an additional -1 morale modifier.
Upgraded Hover Engines.......10 points
The vehicle's engines have been upgraded to provide most speed. The vehicle is now counted as an agile vehicle. This upgrade may not be given to Tau vehicles with armour greater than 52.
Jump Lift............25 pts.
The vehicle's VTOL engines have been modified to rapidly engage themselves and boost the vehicle directly upwards when shot at. This allows the vehicle to dodge some incoming fire in the course of a battle. The vehicle counts as having a 6+ invulnerable save against all hits.
