Default Hammerhead question

1) Does the Hammerhead have to get rid of the burst cannon? Like, the Devilfish has the burst cannon and you can have it to where they can be switched, right? I hope ya'll understand me because I don't know what I'm trying to ask.2) Has anyone ever heard of the Swordfish?

If you're talking about the nose-mounted burst cannon, then yes, it is replaced by the targeting array assembly that comes with the Hammerhead.

You can, however, take the side-mounted burst cannons instead of drones.

Is the Swordfish anything like the Warfish?

1) Do you own a Codex ????, If so its listed there, If you do not own one purchase one, from your local hobby shop or off of e-bay.

2) I don't want to come across as mean it's just simpler if you look and learn from the codex and learn with option are for use with a type of vehicle.

3) Use the search feature within the forum, just like in other search feature it will find any related articles.

Yeah, that's the one.

...I do like the idea of three burst cannons...Reminds me of my love of miniguns.

EDIT- The second sentence was meant in regards to the removal of the nose-mounted burst cannon.

What? Do they not look at the box when they are buying it? It does have a picture after all.

It's more that, I was hoping I didn't HAVE to switch it. But I guess I do, so, whatever.

The Swordfish is a Hammerhead with twin-linked rail guns. I ask because I want to convert a hammerhead into a swordfish. I know that someone here has done it before, but he hasn't been on for awhile so I can't ask him.
