Default Barracuda

Hi all,
I was just wondering if any one eles uses a barracuda in their army and how effective you find it,
I use 1 in my 1000-1500 army and 2 in my 1500+ army's, and have added 4 seeker missiles to it.

I find that the ion cannon deals with troops nicely and the seeker missiles work well against vehicles
and has proven very effective against the khorne and Nid army's that i have fought as they didn't have
any long range weapons so couldn't hit it.

What do the rest of you think to the barracuda?

I also take a tigershark AX-1-0 in my 2000+ battles.

FW is too expensive for my blood, though I would assume they work quite well!

I have one myself. Only big problem is, you absolutely MUST tell your opponent that you're using one before bringing it. I often play against guard, so they just bring a hydra.

Here's the problem I have;
If they bring flack or AA, then the barracuda is almost certainly done for (unless I can kill the flack before it comes in)

OR, if they don't, the game is unbalanced.

I only use air support in very large games, on large tables, where instant support anywhere comes in handy. Plus, my opponents bring planes, and we use the dogfight rules to fight it out.

But in smaller games... nope. Don't bring it. It's either cheesy and no fun, or an auto loss and still no fun.
