I heard about tankbusters and thought o cool ill own cause of my cc and my owning tanks.
What is the best way? Tankbusters, Nobbs anything else, my own tank(battle wagon)?
Power klaws are probably the most reliable way to bust tanks. Though lootaz or a ramming battlewagon work pretty good too against less armoured vehicles. Good luck against Landraiders and their ilk though, we ain't got much that can reliably bust 14 AV.
Do you believe in the day? Do you? Believe in the day!
Tankbustas are unreliable because they HAVE to shoot at ant tank they can see. Nobs with klaws are generally the best bet. Rokkits can help against light tanks, but then you're asking orks to point a gun the rigt way and that seldom works.

Thanks guys im gonna go with noggs with power claws
sorry i meant nobbs
I tend to like using a method I seem rare these days, although I don't use it by itself as it can be unpredictable but very effective (pretty mich like half the wargear options in our 'dex ), but I tend to use Deff Koptas with Buzzsaws. Who doesn't like a fairly cheap outflanking Power Klaw? 50pts base cost for one of these and you have a little insurance policy when it comes to tank busting. Even if it doesn't work 100% of the time 50 points isn't too much of a point sink.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
I like the idea of nobs with klaws, but I always run them just in my boyz squads and it doesn't seem like it is worth it to use an entire squad to assault just one tank that you may or may not kill.
Do people usually run nob bikers with klaws?

The Tale of Two Gamers
- Warboss with Power Klaw is a beast with 5 attacks of S10. Give him a bike and a biker mob to protect him and he'll get fast as hell to enemy lines.
- Loota fire wrecks or disables anything lower than AV14
- Rokkit buggiez or deffkoptaz can easily get to side or back armor
- Killa kanz (or dreadnoughts) are slow but relentless, and they can deliver a lot of S10 attacks. Could work in Kan Wall armies
- Ramming with deffrolla can krush non-skimmers with an insane amount of S10 hits

TLDR: dont put buzzsaws on coptas give them rockits instead.
back on topic
i use a mix of powernobz, massed rockits, and dreads/kans and my favorite THE ROLLING DEATH BATTLE FORTRESS'S

I love Pathfinders.
If the enemy's front/side armor is 12 or less, then the best way are with lootas.
If their front/side armor is 13, then the best way is with rokkit buggies or big gunz kannons (as others have already mentioned, tankbustas are just too unreliable in anything besides apocalypse).
If their front/side armor is 14, then the only reliable way to destroy them is in the assault phase, with powerklaws. Killa kans also work well, but often have trouble getting close enough to them (they work better as a deterrant).
