Default Favorite Armoured Vehicle

I was hearing complaints, so hear you are. I personally chose the chimera. Its good troop carrying capacity and better armour than a Rhino, It is also better armed than other AFVs and APCs in the 40k universe.

Told you I'd come...

Anyways, I love the chimera, it can transport your troops up quickly, then move around the battlefield doing what it does best, mobile fire support.

Great Tank

the chimera by far. It can lay down some cover fire ,and get troops where they need to go..........right into tau heavy fire!

Seriously though, it makes for great target practice for my misslepods.

I really think the Chimera will walk away with this. Like the eldar walked away with "Who has the allumring Women."


Edit: on second thought....

I've def. gotta agree with Fingolfin... there's nothing better to my mind than fast moving autocannon goodness... plus, my Corinthos boys gotta have someone scouting for them, and nothin moves like a salamander does!

In game terms, the Chimera - When you use them as Guard, you can be versatile, put down fire, and get troops in close. When you play against them, you can glance the sides with anything better than a flashlight - Hurrah!

If I had to drive one, the Salamander Scout - fits my hit-and-run assault philosophy perfectly, although knowing me I would try to rig it with a Lascannon or two when the techpriest is looking the other way.
