swooping hawks can easily blow up armour 14 tanks because they have haywire grenades

If you have just deepstriked and can't assault, you can still harm the rear armour of most tanks with the strength 5 hawks talon at range, but a unit assaulting with haywire grenades is your best bet, seeing as they worst they can hit on is a 4+ if you give them intercept.

While we are on the subject, may i ask which rule take precedence, the intercept ability or the rule about only hitting walkers with grenades on 6's?

Codex rules take precedence over Rulebook rules I do believe

I think it was intended against skimmers. You shouldn't have a problem hitting things with a WS anyways though. Haywire grenades are the best for killing huge AVtanks, and intercept best at knocking off hard to hit gnats like speeders and pirhannas. Either way they are very good at killing off vehicles... if you can keep them alive.
