What do you consider the best tank in the games based on points cost, usabilty, armour, weapons and effectiveness in relation to the army?
For me its the tooled-up Falcon. It packs a lot of punch in shooting, can take lots of damage before crashing and is a transport vehicle too! Don't forget that its fast, so it can move 24" to grab an objective or escape from enemy fire after it has downgraded yet another potentially dangerous "stun" result to "shaken". Did I mention it can't be destroyed by an immobilised result? It is costly though.
i don't think you'll find anyone who thinks there's a better overall tank then a tooled-up falcon. Many a player has called cheese on that thing. and to be honest, you can get a decent falcon for 175, which is NOTHING compared to much much less resilient tanks (LRC is 250 if i recall correctly)
The only thing that gets close to staying on the table as long as a falcon is the Necron Monolith, which is much more expensive.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

I will not vote for the falcon as it's stupid that it can be made invincible for an even lesser cost than most tanks.
How 'bout the Hammerhead? 175 points makes the Hammerhead a great, tough gunboat. Compared to the Falcon it has a better Ballistics Skill, much better guns, it can shoot as if it were a fast vehicle, so it gets the benifits of the Skimmers Moving Fast rule while retaining its ability to shoot.
It's better against tanks, it's better against infantry, and if it doesn't have Holo Fields and a Spirit Stone, it does have front AV 13 and Decoy Launchers. It isn't as fast, but that Railgun has crazy-good range.
Hammerhead definitely ranks among the top tanks in the game, giving even the cheese-mobile Falcon a run for its money.
Once again, the conservative, sandwich-heavy portfolio pays off for the hungry investor!
Falcon, tho Fire Prism is a close second, especially in pairs. I'm a bit worried about the rumored changes to the vehicle system making skimmers less durable to balance this out as my Tau vehicles may suffer. >_< They could have instead just make holo fields as expensive as they are awsome. Personally I think the holo field rule could have been the same as venerable and still been good.
Falcon?? indestructible?? tough?? we are talking about eldar falcons yeah???
Personaly i never have many problems against them, my brother plays eldar and while i see it is an effective tank i neve rhave much trouble, but then agains some people are better against certain things than others, im sure i find some things difficult to beat that others dont.
I think the Lemen Russ is a damn good tank, followed up by the preadetor.
Though my all time favorite.....

I think bang for buck, though. the predator with autocannons/lascannon sponsons is probably my vote for all around beatstick. Consider that the falcon, as awesome as it is, as hard as it is to destroy, is still rather pricy in points.
