little confused what you mean with the ground you want a tactical build for space or ground?
both tanking or multi use for escorts or cruisers?

tanking on ground with a tac you probably want the squadleader kit...and the coresponding skill for it in the skilltree.
But normaly the best class for tanking on ground is the science career with a heal kit. If you even need one which is doubtfull. Only real stf encounter that needs a "tank" is cure ground since armek would otherwise use his superzapper to kill the grp.

For space tanking you should be able to find plenty of tanking builds. If you are not interested in skilling threat control thats not even a problem anymore, since the emabssy console have +threat modifiers that can compensate.
Ironicly, the best tanking skill is tactical team 1, which should be ready in any serious tanking skill atleast every 20 seconds. No matter how this is accomplished, be through the DOFFs, or a Aux2Batt build or simply having 2 copies doesn't matter. 2 versions of EPtS chained, TSS, HE, AUX2SIF and RSP are enough usually to withstand anything elite stfs can throw at you.
Go pro or go home
