    strength: X

    I was looking at the eldar FAQ and is says that the singing spear counts a strength 9. So does that mean that the D-cannon's strength: X counts as strength 9.

    No, I would guess that unless explicitly stated in the FAQ the D-cannon follows it's own rules under the "Support weapons" paragraph in the Eldar Codex.

    the Singing Spear has Strength X, which in it's case is triple it's user's Strength, against tanks. In CC it always wounds on a 2+.

    D-cannons have no strength. They have special rules on how to wound models and damage tanks in the support weapon battery section of the codex.

    the wraithcannon also operates on it's own rules, but it's actually the same as the D-cannon

    thanks for the help.
    I just wanted to know about the D-cannon becasue my friend plays necrons so the s9 would mean i would intant kill them, otherwise they just get right back up even though it is ap2.

    it's not ap2 it's ap 6, so your right, but a one shot that wounds on 2+, it's meant for tank hunting.

    The D-cannon and Wraithcannon are both AP2, and while neither technically has a strength value on a to wound roll of 6 they inflict instant death regardless of toughness, so it is possible to make your opponent lose some of his WBB rolls.

    Focused blast from 2 fire prisms, the spinneret rifle, and potentially ranger/pathfinder shots. I think that's about it though outside of meltas like you mentioned.

    Also the great thing about d-cannons is rolling a 6 on someones hero and insta kill them.
