    Tank hunting units

    He y'all

    Just wondering how to configure a tank hunting unit out of a combat squad.
    My unit runs with
    1marine w/ plasma gun
    1marine w/ melta gun
    1 srg. w/ power fist and plasma pistol.
    2marines w/bolters

    In a razorback w/ twinlinked lascanon

    Any suggestions to try and make it a universal tank hunter unit or is the best way to do it?

    Thx

    Well, you're only able to take onespecial weapon and one heavy weapon, not the 2 special weapons you have listed.

    That being said, the best tank hunting unit with only a combat squad would probably be a meltagun and a sgt. with a combi-melta and a powerfist. The Razorback looks fine

    I will either use MM Attack Bikes or a Tactical Squad with meltagun, lascannon, and powerfist in a Razorback (I run Sicarius so I'll give them Tank Hunters if need be, Vulkan would work too).

    Sternguard with combi-meltas in a Drop Pod are also good at this.

    I'll be using a multi melta landsppeder and maybe a dread in a drop pod with a multi melta mainly.

    Bikers with 2 Meltas, Sarge could also take some special weapons, but my army is going to go all-infantry for now...

    I use the free missile launchers in my tact squads and the powerfists and krak in my combat squads. Occaisionally i'll have a melta or two but I don't have one designated unit.

    Thanks
    had to take a second glance at the codex to make sure.
    Though why not give the srg. a melta gun over a combi melta? i understand points why but you only get one chance with a combi. then again if your that close you only got one chance to begin with.

    Because you can't give the sarge a melta, you can give a normal trooper a melta and the sarge a combi-melta. Even if you could, It's nice having the extra distinguishing when it comes around to wounds time for the melta.
