    Has anyone tried the jayth pit patrol. With the 15 model cap the pit patrol profile is an interesting way to sneak in an extra model. In N3 I considered the redfury profile the only good jayth, but the loss of taiga spam makes the pit patrol a serious option.

    They buffed them with more rules, for sure, but they also bumped their costs and removed Shock Immunity. I can't really see a reason for taking them except, perhaps, the 25pt Chain Rifle bro as a Haris link enabler. Super bummed, because the models (and Sargosh) are amazing... but they just seem too glass hammer or too much role duplication vs better troops (Caliban)

    I think that it's necessary in vanilla with the 15 troops limit

    I don’t think pit patrol is available in V. Combined

    Correct, pit patrol is in SEF only.

    My biggest problem with them is being unable to coordinated order, which makes them quite order inefficient. I usually have better things to do than move a Taiga and a non-SWC Jayth out of my DZ into the midfield given theres no impetuous, coordination or infiltration to make it more efficient.

    And that sucks, because profiles like this are so damn cool

    I did get some good mileage out of a couple of pit patrol Jayth for specific ITS missions (the ones with an objective room), because it gave them the cover they needed to push forward and survive, and once they were in there they were phenomenal at locking down the room.

    Outside of that, limited application, especially given the points bump.
