Glanced through the forum and didn't see anything on this yet. While browsing through the new book Saturday night I saw that the spec-ops optional gear is much more geared towards what faction it is now, rather than just the normal list, plus one or two faction weapons. I love it! New combos are great, especially ones that actually correspond to the faction. This involves weapons, skills and equipment. Which profile you're taking is locked to the base profile of the line troop of the sectorial. The only ones I remember specifically are for Haqq. Ramah can only have Ghulams, QK can only have Hafza and HB can only have Muyibs, so no more Ghulam Spec-Ops boosting the AVA for the Ghulam core. This will take away options throughout all factions, but I don't see it as a terrible thing, as it might be taking care of unintended additions due to how you were able to select the profile bases in the past. Also, Haqq Spec-Ops can take jammers!
