hay guys i collect iron hands and i can field 6 dreads ( if i wish ) and was wondering is it only blood angles that can have 2 cc weapons ? only just started collecting so im quite rusty
It's a unique Blood Angels vehicle called a Furioso Dreadnought. All other chapters have to make do with the regular one with the assault cannon.
But really, the Furioso isn't a whole lot better - it gives up the AC for one extra close combat attack. Its saving grace used to be how cheap it was.

I like my furioso He can actually up to 7 attacks on the charge plus furious charge 8X
Yes you lose one assault cannon for one extra CC arm, but a couple of other important points: with two CC arms, you still strike at str 10 with no armor saves after having suffered one weapon destroyed result. Also, the furioso is the only one which can be upgraded to a death company dreadnaught, which gives him even more attacks. And I suppose je_suis_roix is correct, if you decided to take Brother Corbulo, the dreadnaught could get furious charge (although the str from the charge would not matter). He still needs to be cheaper, though. With a few exceptions, dreadnaughts are too expensive for us BA players now

My experience with CC dreadnaughts is that they always die before they get there. I am thinking of fielding 2 dreads in a 1000pt army both with a missile launcher and and assault cannon, I think this works much better.

Sence your asking what armys can feild dreads with 2 close combat weapons. Then its only Blood Angels and Space Wolves.
