ummm no only the adeptus astartes use thunderhwaks(to the best of my knowledge). the soroitas just use normal dropships like the guard use.

How do you mean? like a battle barge?

On the battlefield they traditionally use Rhinos, the most recent army list (from the GW web site) has taken this away from the troop choices, however rumour control has it that this may be back in Codex Witchhunters.

Forgeworld have a larger transport (rhino with a cargo holder on the roof.

I have never seen Sisters in Epic and I dont know about BFG so weather they have anything like Capitol Imperialis or Thunderhawk is unclear, they undoubtedly have access to space ships, however, the type is unclear. Codes Witchhunter will, by the sound of it, have them escorting a Witchhunter in the same way as Gray Knight s and the inquisition/Demon Hunter, hence they will have acccess to those reasources as well

Also it is worth noting that SoB are not an army per se but started out as a bodygaurd and have become a counter insurgancy force, more or less like the Russian MVD. IT is unlikely that they would have access to the high end of the Super heavy equipment

I have to agrea. The sisters are better suited for witch hunts underneeth the over crowded Hive worlds where their flamers are most affective. Their heavy support option alone says that they arent meant for major battles. They are kind of like firemen. well, maybe more like the ones in farenhight 454, only they burn witches, not books. So I guess because they are like public service workers, they might just travel from planet to planet as civilians, and have their tanks shipped through the mail. I could be wrong.

I took a look at Sister Mel's Battle sisters compendium, and it said that a few of the chapters never allow their sisters to have any contact with non battle sisters. I know she said that her word shouldn't be taken too seriously with the fluf, but if that was true, the sisters would most deffinately need their own transports. Maybe not an entire battle fleet, but something that could carry a few hundred sisters of battle and a bunch of tanks, and still fit inside the hanger of another larger battle ship. A thunderhawk wouldn't be out of the question.
