EMP grenades > Any vehicle.

on another note, take or proxy 9 broadsides and laugh. I played in a mega battle against one. It died on turn 1 from 9 railguns. Not including my hammerheads

Hmmm... so you hammered it's void shields first to oblivion then it's real armor?...ok then...EMP's..so an infantry attack with our FW swarming it's legs...but what if it has a techpriest..if i remember right it nullifies a bunch of damage per turn...by the way thanks for the replies..it would really help on wiping my brother's arrogant smile off his face...

I feel like you could wipe the smile off his face by simply beating him objective wise. You probably have many more units than he does because a titan in many cases is just a huge points sink. Anyways with tau, a few crisis with FB and some railguns should have no problem. The FW idea is great too.

I think you could just avoid it and kill the rest of his force.

Railguns. A few Hammer heads or Broadsides should take down a Titan nicely, I think. To tell the truth I have no experience in this feild but Railguns look like a nice answer.

A friend spent so long trying to damage my Falcon with EMPs that he eventually ended up trying to punch through the rear armour with a Crisis...

If you want to be realy mean, don't let him bring it... it's harsh, but it is a Forge World model. Beyond that, lots of Railguns... and a swarm of EMP-toting infantry should actually work wonders.

Broadsides have a much better chance of hitting by 33 % allso i find that i would rather take 2 Broasides to one Hammerhead point wise

well, a Tigershark with railcannons are good. Since they are TK weapons, they could do the work of 3 railguns in 1 shot. Best bet is the bring downthe void shields with BS or HH fire and railcannon him in the rear with the tigershark.
