It is not the Tau way of war to fight protracted, static battles. Aggressive use of mobility and firepower are the keys to the success of the Fire Warriors. A large part of this success is dependant upon the activities of a cadre's Stealth teams – their role is to find the enemy, create diversions and launch surprise attacks, while acting as rear guards should things go poorly.
The Rapid Insertion Force is a specialized formation that strikes suddenly against key enemy units or establishes a perimeter to hold ground until other Fire Caste units arrive. A single Stealth team leads the way for a more heavily armed force of Crisis teams. The entire force trains together, delivering a swift, effective attack that stuns the enemy, allowing further Tau forces to move forward unmolested.
