In general the cisco 6500 series switches have a supervisor engine, this SUP is required since it is contain both the MSFC & the PFC, the IOS and the configuration files are running with this SUP. in other words, you can't run or use these switches without SUP.
When you order these switches "chassis only" you are required to order the SUP for them in adddition to other network modules or services modules.
The network modules copper or fiber with many types based on the number of ports and also the switching capacity and speed.
For the services modules like firewall, load balance, IPS, wireless modules and others.
The network and services modules based on your requirements, but the SUP is a must.
