Default A name for "FoF, but with Piranha"

I was reading Isfahel's Revised Piranha Tactica and it struck me that using Piranha to create a Fish of Fury effect deserves a name of its own.

Piranha of Pestering.

;D

Or how about just "using Piranhas to block assaults"?

I can't tell you how badly I wish I could go back in time and veto Vegemite_of_Doom's suggestion of the Fish of Fury name. Gimmicky names seem like a neat idea at the time, but with three years hindsight they just seem kinda... lame. :P

Why is everyone harping about the name? Tt sounds great, gives the right expression, and is now associated everywhere (even in ye olde German speaking lands) with Tau.

You should be proud of it - no other army has a similarly cool name for a Tactic!

GW has acknowledged Fish of Fury as the name of the tactic in an online article, so I'm afraid its going to stick. Anyway, it provides an easier way to introduce the idea to people- "FoF" is easier associated with it than "that one tactic where they jump out the back and rapid fire".
