Outrider.
2 Wave serpents + 1 Falcon
Flat out Wave serpent suffers the hit, 4+ cover save and energy fields downgrade the attack, and are resolved against the Falcon holofields, 2d6 take lowest, that didn't' move flat out.

Tank hunter bright lances

and super-heavies!

At least now you will be able to field all your skimmers and take as many fire dragons as you can squeeze in.

You're still capped at 3 for elites, FA, and heavy. So no more than normal for FD.

What I don't like is that dedicated transports count as heavy:

When selected as part of a spearhead, dedicated
transports count as Heavy Support units instead, and
therefore are selected without a transported unit.

That also means Tau cannot take pathfinders because they must take a dedicated transport.

Also, eldar can take 9 Warwalkers in one unit. Guide 18 warwalkers with eldrad? Yes, please.

or 9 vendetta all with tank hunters for that matter.

You're reading it wrong. A DT only counts as heavy if it is part of a spearhead formation, so it would be part of the foc and a spearhead formation.

They don't count against the FOC, but are treated as Heavy Support otherwise, for instance for deployment purposes, eg. if a mission said no Heavy Support at deployment it would mean no placing a Spearhead of Chimeras at the start of the game, stops players arguing about which FOC slot they took the transports from.
