Default Piranha versus Vyper

I have a bet with a friend: He says that even a fully (and this is fully) equipped Piranha couldn't been a base-model Vyper in one-on-one skimfight. Who's right?

Full-on Prihana against bare-bones Vyper?
You win three times over. Maybe four. Poinstwise, a barebones Pirhana alone is 15 points more. But the Vyper can have good AT wapons at long range, the Pirhana is better armoured and has all the defensive upgrades, and 2 drones distraction...

You win 3 times over. Maybe you should play a game like that.

If he kitted out him vyper then theres a good probability he'd wipe you model over the walls and perhaps the ceiling. However barebones, a pirhanna can move 12" use fusion and hurt him, and with all the upgrades this is probable, plus be hard to shoot back at due to disruption and such pods.

depends on who goes first really. a fully equipped Pihranna can still be destroyed by a lucky brightlance shot but then a Vyper can be destroyed quite easily too. over all i would rule with the pihranna as the victor.

Piranha should win... I'm not sure how many points the Vyper is but assuming they're both running without upgrades Pirhana has better armor and more shots than anything you can put on a Vyper. At very best it'd be close but I'd still bet on the Piranha

An unupgraded viper loses to an unupgraded pirannha. 5 s5 shots at armor 10 is better than 3 s6 shots at armor 11. Also the viper is 10 points cheaper at base.

Every weapon upgrade can be matched with a fusion blaster, with the exception of upgrading the shuricats on the side to another shuricannon, bringing the total number of viper shots to 6. This can be evened out by equipping the pirannha with a targetting array.

Of course, the Eldar defensive vehicle upgrades give the viper an edge. But unupgraded? Your friend is on crack.

seems to be a split between all the posters...let me emphasize: fully loaded Piranha verus base Vyper...of course, if it was both loaded, then it would be different...

In that case the Vyper loses hands down... go send your friend to rehab...

Hmm...this is quite an interesting debate...how about a third candidate...Landspeeder Tornado. BS4 with four S6 shots at 24" and 3 S5 shots at 24"...but armor 10...still, a strong contender against either rival when the other two are upgraded to reach 80 points.
