Default So what is it?

I was reading the tau, "suicide fish" thread and the general consensus was that you need to be a tank to make a ramming move. well, this didn't sit well with me so i asked a gw red shirt, several in fact. they all said that all vehicles (minus walkers) can ram. so what is it?

i just realized this has nothing specifically to do with the tau. So mods, please move this as seen fit.

And in the deecription they clearly say only tank can do it: So a devilfish, hammerhead and skyray can. The piranha no.

Your Red shirt was wrong.

Exactly. If you read Codex: Tau Empire closely, it states that a Hammerhead, Skyray and Devilfish are Tanks, where the Prianha is a Vehicle. Only Tanks can Ram/Tank Shock.

Lets get em boyz there is a modify button that looks like a little pencil if you go back and read you own posts so then you can edit your posts so you do not have to double post which is frowned upon.
Just wanted to point that out to you so you do not get smote for it later.
And yes only tanks can ram.
