The Armoured Companies of the Tau are not as common as their Imperial counterparts. However, such forces do exist, and they combine speed and manoeuvrability with overwhelming firepower.
For the most part, the Armoured Companies are composed of less orthodox Hammerhead variants, allowing them to engage and destroy their enemies, as well as test out the more unorthodox Hammerhead variants.
Many in the Shas'Ar'Tol wish for Armoured Companies composed entirely of the more common Hammerheads, but the demand for such vehicles among the Infantry hunter-cadres means there is never enough to go around.

A Heavy assault tank designed for extreme armour-hunting. The Swordfish is designed to compliment the Hammerhead, rather than replace it. Faults with Swordfish, combined with high maintenance requirements, means that the Swordfish is rarely used in battle.
