The Broadside Battlesuit or XV-88 is the heaviest variant of the Crisis Battlesuit. Used by the Allies, these Battlesuits' design is an effective compromise between offensive firepower, defensive protection, and tactical maneuverability. Broadside Battlesuits are only issued to veterans who have gained sufficient experience piloting Battlesuits. The jetpacks commonly found on Crisis suits are replaced with twin-linked Railguns or Heavy Rail Rifle's or large numbers of Missile Pods, some of the most powerful anti-tank weapons available in the Tau arsenal.
