Default Why do most of the lists I see have 10 FW and 1 DF?

Ok, im still new to the "Fish of Fury" thing. I'm really interested in the speed and mobility of it(one of the reason i loathe broadsides....soo slow). I did some research into it but most of the FoF lists I see only have 10 FW in each Devilfish...why?

Im not totally sure on this and I dont have my codex with me but... I think that Devilfish are only allowed to hold 10 units. Dont quote me on this.

Itīs cheaper, and the 20pts you free up can be used well. And the devilfish can transport 12 models.

Hi,

The devilfish can hold 12 models, but some mech players say it's sometimes hard to hit all 12 models with 12" for rapid fire, while ensuring the enemy can't assault the unit (even going round the devilfish).
