It isn’t a build around like the first two, but is useful to have if you want to be Stygies for other reasons. That’s no joke on something like a Skorpius Disintegrator, especially as it’s easier to get parts of multiple vehicles into the aura to benefit, and it seems plausible that this is good enough on rate by itself to put on a TPD who is babysitting a gunline of Skorps and Dunecrawlers. If you are very, very sure that your metagame needs access to the countermeasure strat, this is probably where I’d put it as well – if you’re going to throw away a plane to switch off some auras you may as well drop some bombs on the way. It isn’t the easiest thing in the world to use because it’s model-based rather than unit based, but even managing to string a few models from each unit into the aura (which I think is the way to use this) provides them with a hefty ablative screen against incoming attacks.
