Default Tau Weapon "Mathhammer"

I hereby present to you, the member/guest of Tau Online Forums... The statistics for Tau Weapons shooty power against various enemies. I know not everyone is a fan of using maths in Warhammer 40k, but some people may find this useful, and this is for them. This chart can be useful for things such as arming Crisis suits, or determing which units to put in an army tailored to a specific need. Feel free to ask how effect these weapons will be against other foe, though I will need the toughness and armour save values.

1st Number = Number of Terminators killed per turn.
2nd Number = Number of Space Marines killed per turn.
3rd Number = Number of Eldar Guardians killed per turn.
4th Number = Number of Tau killed per turn.
5th Number = Number of Tyranids killed per turn.

Thankee To Ravager for showing me how to use tables, though would have liked a nicer approach! I will finish tabling tommorow.

Okay, sorry for that little rant, but it's just plain annoying to see row & column data not properly aligned.

It is hard to someone who is new to this forum.
And putting all that in is going to take a while...
