There are several The Manta is the biggest, by far, but there's also the Moray (like a Manta, but smaller and has no troop-carrying capacity and lots of guns) the Tigershark, the Whiteshark (which I like the best myself. Railcannons all the way home!) the Barracuda, Orca and the Scorpionfish. WOOT! It's too bad there isn't models for 1/2 that list! Even in Epic!

Go to the Specialist Games site, then to the Epic Section. In Experimental rules, they're all there. Gimme a sec for a link...

Here: http://www.specialist-games.com/assets/tau_4_1.pdf

Scorpionfish: Pg. 10

Other aircraft start on Pg. 13.

Oh I hoped they'd be in 40K. :'( Oh well, I'll get hopes up when they bring out the tau empire codex, that's going to be so hardcore. O0 >

The Manta is overrated. The Barracuda is the best flyer by far.

Because the Barracuda has massive firepower, is fast, and is capable of pulling moves like a Thunderbolt. The only weakness this monster has is the pilot, who are generally inferior to Imperial Navy pilots.

The Manta is a floating target. Whilst it is a real threat to conventional vehicles, any half-decent Titan will blow it to pieces.
