Well, he is a beast, and he is probably more efficient at using his natural weaponry of claws, teeth, and muscle than any manufactured weapon.

Krootox are indeed powerful in close combat. It's too bad there's no reason to take them currently.

well in the background the Krootox are herbivores and gentle creatures so it is best for the Kroot to mount guns on them

a krootox is a weaponbeast, like the horse that carries the artillery piece. It is not an artillery piece in itself.

But in a sense it could act up as a cavalry piece(but it is not).

Their are just bad right now, but I think we'll see more of them in the new codex since now they will simply be an upgrade to the squad (ROCK!).

Consider this:

Krotox cost 50 pts for a marginal long range rapid fire weapon.

A crisis suit with TL BC and flamer cost 51 points can JSJ, produce 3 shots at 18" or a template autohit. If just BC, flamer, MT it could fire both in same turn.

An IG autocannon sentinel cost the same and gives 2 shots per turn, has armor, and is classed a walker.

An eldar viper cost slightly more and is a fast skimmer.

The krotox is just overpriced underperforming gun-cow.

Well said, I'd say that the reasson they are not cavalry and therefore not fgast attack is because they are not fast! They are reffered to as lumbering beasts in the codex

I herd that they will also be cheeper, but will also go down to T3. Mixed blessing I guess :-\.
