We are not at liberty to give stats for offical units (eg: GW or Forgeworld).

If you're considering buying one of these, I'd recommend the Barracuda, if only because it's smaller, costs less points, and has less guns. This means you can use it in smaller games and your opponent won't be as reluctant about letting you field it.

Dude, you must seriously be packing a lot of cash if you want to buy the Orca and then a Barracuda or a Tiger Shark. that's nearly 2500 dollars US if I remember correctly. (well, mostly ballparking, but it's still very expensive.) I think Tiger Sharks can actually launch drone squadrons, so I'd probably go with them, but I could be wrong on that. Don't take my workd for it because I haven't read Imperial Armor or any of the Updates since they moved them out of the stores.

I think the Baracuda is the better buy, its alot cheaper ( 65) and the only things it lacks for the tiger is the gun drone rack and it has not got a TL ion

The Barracuda is about $125 and the Orca is over $400. I like the Tiger Shark 'cause of the drone rack.
