Hi so I got the codex today and I was wondering what do people rely on to take out vehicles? Personally I don't think I could rely on lootas or tank bustas because of their bs the bomb squig and tank hamer is cool but the problem is getting close enough to use them. If the worst comes to the worst I'd throw a squad of ork boys into a vehicle but I don't want to waste their potential.

Warboss with Power Klaw! Deffrollas! Deff Dreads! Killa Kans! Rokkit Buggies! Pure WAAAAAAAGH awesomeness!!
Really,the only reliable way to do it is with CC. I've had some luck with rokkit buggies, but CC is waaay more reliable for tank bustin'.

depends on the tanks. The more the av the more cc seems the best choice. I usually just ignore land raiders when I can to be honest.
Yeah, it all depends on av, if you get lucky and roll a 5 or 6 for lootas you can take out lower av tanks. I took out a whirlwind with my lootas but i rolled a 6 and had 15 of them.
Stormboyz with their leader might work, you can charge into combat the turn you deepstrike, but for that you need a big squad. Boom gun on a looted wagon might do some damage st 8 ordnance????
My favorite tank killing units:
3 Big Gunz kannons w/1-3 ammo runts
3 Deffkoptas w/rokkits and 1 buzzsaw
3 Rokkit buggies
Warboss w/bike, cybork, powerklaw
Battlewagon w/deffrolla, grot riggers, and kannon
With emphasis on the deffrolla, deffkoptas, and lootas
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
I'd say Lootas are better than anything in the book, since Assault is hampered is the Vehicle moved and can't happen early game. The reason I prefer them to Rokkits etc. is because of high dice volume, you have a better chance to hit your averages and a better chance to convert to Glances/Pens.
My Assault preference is Koptas with PKs. They're extremely cheap and can charge Turn 1 (Scouts) which lets them hit before your opponent moves if you go first. S7 isn't awe inspiring but if you take 2-3 that's a very good chance to do damage. They're also good against more than just Armor, same for Lootas while I believe you cannot say the same for Rokkits to as high a degree.
Rollas are of course awesome but I'm not a Mech believer.
That many S7 shots will shred anything AV12 or lower you put in front of it, I have rolled the crap out of that and seen it in games many times (I take 15 man squads). PKs go against the rear which is usually 10, Koptas don't charge Land Raiders. Both units also have a ton of versatility which is better than doing one thing really well, in my opinion.
What a lasgun do with a kopta and what with a buggy?
I never said Your way is not good! You play for long time but i think a new player better with a bit more durable unit.
ps.: You have a cool signature!
