Default WE NEED SUPER HEAVYS!!!!! (TANKS)

I started new collecting Tau i really like them has well anyway i started playing and collecting warhammer 40K about 10 years ago but stopped because then i was to small and never understood the game properly but i got back in to it and the game has changed alot!!! The IG got some sick tanks and the other army's got lots of other cool tanks/and other super heavy class stuff and iam very very pissed off that the Tau have NO super heavy stuff !!! Everyone says the Tau have super tech and it keeps on advancing but i think that the Tau have the tech to make a super heavy tank and i would like to know from you my greater good friends that we too should have a super heavy tank!!! and please be free to write anything if you like this idea or not and why? and if you have any ideas what the tank should look like and what it should be armed with please be free to write them down!!!

FOR THE GREATER GOOD!!!!!

Oh good jesus my eyes X(

Seriously reading that I couldn't get the voice from the "Wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube man" sketch from family guy out of my head.

*ahem*

I really don't think the Tau need superheavy tanks. The Super heavy fliers we have access to are completely sufficient to do the job and have better survivability. Plus they look cool.

Honestly, you can't really think we're lacking with beauties like the Manta and the Ax-10 can you?

My subtle diagram disagrees with you.
your "subtle" diagram contains Optimus Prime and Proffessor Farnsworth, it's heresy in it's own right!
Any similarities between your reality and mine are purely coincidental...

Firstly, please don't write in caps and extra large fonts, its not needed.
Secondly, please don't swear. its a family forum. Play nice.

Thirdly, the tau don't have tanks. Tanks are prehistoric to the tau. Its the equivalent of man rubbing sticks together to create fire to the tau. Why invent the wheel when you can fly.

All tau vehicles are skimmers.
Tau do have super heavy flyers, which are better then super heavy tanks. For 1 most enemy fire needs to add 12" to the range and roll a 6 to hit it.

Yes, we know. But we don't know why you'd want that when what we have already is basically better.

Cry me a river, I'd like to drown you in it.

Tau don't do Super-Heavy. End of. Those they do have are more support vehicles anyway.

Your font is...

...massive...

Anyway, I've always wondered what a super-heavy Tau skimmer would look like, but it's hard to justify. There's just no reason for Tau to have a skimmer that big when a flyer could do the job better...or when a smaller tank like the hammerhead is sufficient. A railgun can almost punch through anything, you can pop Baneblades with them, so a heavy tank isn't really necessary.

As for the cost, well...the Tigershark is about $250 I think, and I'd care to wager it's about the size of a Baneblade.

The Tigershark AX-10 (which is the one you want ) is £125. Its a super heavy flier, and most importantly its capable of destroying a warhound titan every turn it attacks.

Honestly, why do you want a tank when you have this?

We don't need superheavy tanks because we have Tigershark AX-10s.
