    Predator Autocannon

    maybe this is just me, but does anyone else think the predator should have at least a reaper autocannon? because it is a tank, of te space marines no less. I think it should have a slightly more powerful anti infantry weapon

    The reaper cannon is the same as the autocannon in str and ap, the only difference is that it trades 12 inches of range for being twin linked. Personally I think that being able to shoot the same distance as a lascannon is very important for my tanks as they are sitting at the back not moving much so that they can have maximum shooting ability. If it was a reaper autocannon it would force my predadtor to move into position during the first few turns when normally I would be already shooting down my opponents. Also since Predators do their best damage during the first few rounds shooting down enemy tanks I think that it is important for them to be able to shoot without needing to move into position for their main weapon to work.

    I don't think that twinlinked is worth the 12 inches of range

    I think it's fine how it is. I like the autocannon how it is, and i like that it has a good amount of range. However, it depends. For tank hunting, then I like it the way it is, but against hoard then I like the idea of the reaper auto cannon.

    But, overall, I think it sho;uld stay the same.

    Generally Preds are better for tank hunting than horde hunting. Chaos has incredibly good cc, and although I don't have much anti horde experience what I have gotten has shown me that a squad of daemons can generally hold its own against any number of opponents. Chaos heavy support is much better at anti tank than most anything else we have, except maybe a well positioned raptor squad with meltas. A twinlinked autocannon with 48 inch range would be incredibly nice though

    I'd twin link my red shirts' bolters if i could! Any nid player will tell you the true value of twin linked, especially when they plaster gunk all over your squads with a devil fex.

    But, generally i fair ok with the single autocannon.

    An auto cannon turret with las cannon sponsons gives a good yield of fire. They're brilliant againt armour an even against specialist squads i've found them usefull.

    Twin linked would be the icing on teh cake, but i think it would make them too powerful. So i advice you JeZus, to get more lucky
