1500 Competitive Tau Empire: "The One List"

This is an army list that I made to take on any army. It looks to be pretty competitive, so I wanted to fit in as many Crisis suits as possible, while still having a balanced army list. So, without further ado, here is my 1500 Tau army list:

HQ
Shas’el – 127
               Missile Pod, Plasma Rifle, Targeting Array, Hard-Wired Multi-Tracker, Hard-Wired Drone Controller, x2 Shield Drones

Elites
XV8 Squad – 186
               3 XV8 Battlesuits with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi-Tracker
XV8 Squad – 186
               3 XV8 Battlesuits with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi-Tracker
XV8 Squad – 186
               3 XV8 Battlesuits with Plasma Rifle, Missile Pod, Multi-Tracker

Troops
Fire Warrior Squad – 70
               7 Fire Warriors
Kroot Carnivore Squad – 70
               10 Kroot Carnivores

Fast Attack
Piranha – 75
               Fusion Blaster, Disruption Pod, Targeting Array
Piranha – 75
               Fusion Blaster, Disruption Pod, Targeting Array
Pathfinder Squad – 169
               7 Pathfinders, Devilfish with Disruption Pod

Heavy Support
XV88 Broadside Squad – 200
2 Broadsides, Shas’ui Team Leader with Advanced Stabilization System, Hard-Wired Target Lock, Hard-Wired Drone Controller, and x2 Shield Drone, Shas’ui with Advanced Stabilization System
Hammerhead Gunship – 155
               Railgun, Burst Cannons, Disruption Pod

Total - 1499


This army list is designed to have a "castle" base of Broadsides, Fire Warriors, Pathfinder's Devilfish, and possibly my Hammerhead, surrounded on the most dangerous front by kroot, while my piranhas and battlesuits bring in the enemy and distract from my more fragile units. Basically, I use the Tau castling tactics, in miniature form. Pathfinders will usually deploy on a hill or similar piece of terrain, while everything else will deploy in or around my castle.
