Default New Tau Vehicles

For all you Whit Dwarf readers out there, In the current issue of White Dwarf 313, Sebastian Stuarts Tau army features a Tetra. From what i read tetras are forgeworld vehicles right. So i was just wondering if tetras were coming out of Forgeworld, to be in the new Tau Codex Tau Empire ???

- Also how big are Piranhas and Sky ray vehicles and what weapon mounts do they have ???

As of now there is no indication that Tetras will be in the new codex, nor that they will even be released as an official GW model.

Skyrays are basically a Devilfish with a mounted missile system. Piranhas are slightly smaller than a Devilfish or Hammerhead I believe.

If you search around, you can probably find answers to all these questions. However:

- The Tetra is Forge World, and NOT in Tau Empire... it must have been a list allowing FW.
- The Pirahna is basically a lighter armoured, open-canopy Devilfish without the troop-carrying capacity.
- The Skyray carries 6 Seeker Missiles, which it can launch of its own accord.
- Pihranas are actually civilian vehicles pressed into millitary service as far as the current fluff goes...

It uses the same chassis as the devilfish and hammerhead but the turret is replaced by a T wing with seeker missiles on it.

have you looked at the Sneak Peek pictures? If so, you would have noticed: a) I looks like a HH/devilfish b) It have seeker missles and c) Because, it looks like a HH it should be able to have SMS and busrt cannons. Is this helpful?

I think that covers it.

Piranhas and Skyrays seem to be making the jump to plastic. The rules for them are still somewhat uncertain. Check out the Rumours forum for the latest information we have.

Moved to Tau..

Check the rumours summary: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=15647.0

Tetra won't be in the new codex, only the piranha and skyray (from the Forgeworld range)

Skyray - the same size as a Hammerhead/Devilfish - it's based on the same chassis
Piranha - smaller than a Devilfish



Tacked this post onto an identical topic created over here and scrapped the rest of the moved thread. - Khanaris
