need help with stuff about my predator i dunno wich would be better off on the main gun the dual gun or the single (first peice i get my army on xmas and i dunno what the guns is called yet so lol itd be nice to know what those 2 are also)
OK, the dual piece is the twin-linked kascannon and the single is the autocannon. In my oppinion the best set-up is the autocannon turret with lascannon sponsons. This gives you the ability to take out tanks with your sponsons and you can deal with infantry with the autocannon, also the autocannon isn't that bad at taking out light vehicles.
The autocannon with Lascannon sponsons are a very good versatile unit, it can hunt tanks, it can smoosh a little light vehicle and such.
If you want it to ONLY hunt tanks, then all lascannons are excellent, you get to move and shoot(hitting almost for sure) and having a good chance to at least stun or shake it so next turn you can unleash all the lascannon goodness.
Autocannons with Heavy bolter sponsons are great if you know you will be facing a LOT of infantry. Even better against Ar4 or worse units, but the Volume of fire is quite handy against power armor too.
Twin linkedLascannon with heavy bolter sponsons is good if you intend to be hunting big tough critters, and things on the move, you can move 6'' and shoot your lascannon and unleash the rain of heavy bolter shots, though its arguable that the autocannon is better for this tactic for the extra shot.
Hope this helps.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
I thought the Autocannon HEavy bolter predator or Dakka Predator was really good.
But considering the fact that you should always have some autocannon havocs and a good core of marines with bolters and heavy bolters.. i'm beginning to think it's redundant.
Even the triple las cannon set up.. it's good for tank hunting,. but i still don't think the extra 1 las cannon shot is worth that much. I'd much rather take the autocannon and lascannon predator with daemonic possession.
Against vehicles AP doesn't matter anyway ('1' and '-' and venom cannons excluded obviously.)
@ Kenshin.. i converted my predator to the deliciously ambiguous 'Chaos Cannon'. I've had no complaints as to whether the main turret functions as an autocannon or TL Las cannon.
Karmoon, how did you make this "chaos cannon"?
I shall post a picture tonight. Sorry I can't do it know, but i have work and stuff.
It looks quite good - definitely a lot more Chaosy and definitely better than the weedy old school autocannon...
Watch this space
One thing everyone seems to forget, AC + HBs = Move AND shoot EVERYTHING. The first time I used AC + Las I was depressed at how little I got to shoot. Tank Hunting isn't an issue with IW, so my pred tends to be highly mobile and going after targets of opportunity. What good is a somewhat mobile turrett (that's what it becomes with Las sponsoons if you want to shoot them often).
