Default Tigershark

I need to know roughly what the point cost is of a Tigershark AX-1-0 and if the rules are any different between IA:Taros Campaign and IA:Apocalypse.

Have yet to buy the books but Apocalypse has finally made its way to my area, and there's a stompa herd and rumors of a Warlord under construction.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, they are different, the AX-10 got a small nerfing, and the main guns upgraded to the new Titan Killer format.

We can't tell you the cost, but I would heartily reccommend you use the proper IA:3 rules, with Titan Killer replaced by S D. You'll get a much better unit even at the cost, and its all in the name of fun, right? :

You mean the escape pods?

It's template attack is awesome in the Apoc version.

That's just about as stupid as an air superiority fighter having no AA weapons. Apocalypse just screwed up flyers.

Actually, they are listed in the Tigershark's equipment in IA Apocalypse, along with the escape pod. It just doesn't say what they do, probably to make people buy more books. So, there's no problem with using them the way it specifies in IA3, huh? ^.^

The escape pod, too, not that it's the least bit useful in Apocalypse.

And yes, they are physically on the model.

Actually in Forge world: Apocalypse it says the remora drone fighter has 3 structure points!?! so apoc hasn't nerfed all tau flyers
And it hasn't gone up in point wise either.
I honestly believe that is a misprint though. :P though it would be nice if it was true.

Yeah I think they fixed it to 0 in the FAQ.
