The Tau believe that now is their time; their race, their empire will bring unity to all. There is no foe their technology cannot overcome, no quandary their science cannot resolve. The very stars themselves will be reforged in the cause of the Greater Good.
Thanks to superior technology, the Tau army can bring an impressive array of firepower that is second to none. Tau perceive no dishonor in prudent retreat, and the key to many Tau victories has often been about maximizing long-range firepower and minimizing close combat.
