Israfel420(sp?) has some of the best tactica out there pertaining to them.

Israfel kicked my A.S.S on that online TT simulator with a piranha force in combat patrol.

I agree with Mr.Enderwiggin, have a look for his tactica on them.

Hmm...Piranhas can be used for a number of things. They can be fantastic tank hunters, and because they're such quick little buggers, can be great for snagging objectives at the last minute.

There's on nasty little tactic you can use when hunting APCs (especially Land Raider Crusaders full of Terminators), known as the "Feeding Frenzy." You take a squad of 3+ Piranha. When you're ready to kill the target APC, move your Piranhas around and stick one Piranha right next to each access point on said APC. With 3+ Fusion Blaster shots, you shouldn't have much trouble busting the tank (unless the dice gods don't like you). And with your Piranhas so strategically placed, any occupants of the APC will be killed instantly, since models can't pile out to within 1" of an enemy model.

Tell me that won't make a Space Marine player tear his hair out!

I like it! I may have to try that with my twin Railheads and Sky Ray.
