Decoy launchers

Decoy Launchers mounted on the rear of a T'au Devilfish

Decoy Launchers are a form of T'au vehicle support system that is mounted near the engines of T'au vehicles. When triggered, they fire clouds of reflective strips, sophisticated electronic decoys, flares, chaff and tiny Emitter Drones to protect the vulnerable thruster arrays, although they are also extremely effective at protecting the vehicle from enemy missiles.
