Default New vehicles for codex

I know that tetras, pirhanias, and skyrays will be legal for tau lists but what do they do.

As far as I know Tetras will not be in the new codex. Tetras are a fast attack choice piloted by pathfinders. Basicly they are a very fast markerlight unit.

Piranhas are armed exactly the same as a devilfish but can upgrade their burst cannon with a fusion blaster. They are also fast vehicles. Thus they can be either rapid flanking anti horde or anti armor units.

The Skyray is a missil boat basicly. Armed with 6 seeker missils and a networked markerlight. Giving it smart missil systems as its secondary weapon you can have it sit behind cover and never show a target while other units mark for its missils and it firers its smart missils at anything that gets too close. It is a new heavy support choice.

That is all I have heard about those vehicles personally.

im not sure about tetras at all but i can say they'd be good for table quarters and objectives

Pihranas: Fusion Blaster and drones sounds good enough to kill stuff

skyray:Vash got it right

Are Piranhas open-topped? It looks like they are. And do they have better armor and/or cost less than a Land Speeder? If not, I don't think a Fusion Blaster Piranha is worth it when marines get a Multi-Melta Land Speeder with better range.

A fantastic sig by Kais.

They have better armor. Almost, if not, rhino armor. I think they are open topped though.

Don't forget that it comes with an annoying little two-drone squadron, and they can take seekers... which can still fire after it moves 24 inches...
