Default Piranhas in combat patrol.

i was wondering what people think of this idea. i think they pass all the test. they cost as much as a battle suit and you could easy fit 1 or 2 into a combat partol

good idea, although the piranahs are suseptable to infantry fire, like lasguns and such.

Right, there are no vehicles in the game that can be hurt by lasguns. Piranhas will not stand up too well to Space Marines, though.

i like the ide, however you would have to be very careful with them because they could make up a sizeable chunk of your army.

if the space marines can only hit the frount armour they cant attuly hurt it with out speail wepoans. thought you could allways charge your drones into them

ok, lasguns weren't the best choice, but in white dwarf, it said that the pirahna could be taken down from infantry fire.

another issue is firepower from 2 piranahs, youget 6x b.cannon shots, or 2x fusion gunshots, and 4xtl pulse carbine shots. i perfer 12 pulse rifles and a devilfish

Piranhas are amazing in CP IMO. The can withstand most light weapons fire and for 60 pionts dish out an amazing amount of firepower (how many light vechicles fire 5 Str. 5 shots?). Also, the speed is good too. A small game usually centers around capturing quaters. Since the Piranha is a fast vechicle, it can zip around and dish out a lot of death. Yummy.

It depends on the mission, as do most things. Piranhas are going to be fantastic at swooping down on objectives late in the game, and they can still tank shock most infantry safely (although check the enemy unit very carefully and insist on WYSIWYG).

prefer and work are 2 different things. that and without the points to mess with it you will be able to forget a DF squad and think of other things such as a squad of sniper drones or kroot or something.

Lanfiex= i thought you were talking about 2 or so but yeah a lightly upgraded one wouldnt be too bad.
