Tau Armoured Company
This Article was written by:
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.
