Hey, Quick question , in the lists found in the beginning of this post, the Railgun Hammerhead has Burst Cannons , instead of the smart missile system carried by the rest of the Heads. But in the NetEA tournament pack list, the Railheads too have the smart missile system, http://tp.net-armageddon.org/army-lists/tau.html
Is it right to assume the NetEA tournament pack list is the up to date and correct version (Dunno if there are more things that differ, just noticed this now)

Thanks for catching that Cygun. You're correct, all Hamerhead variants should have smart missile system and seeker missiles. I'll get that cleaned up and roll out the proper form. I'll roll it out with the Vior'la 2.2 list. I just want to get at least one more play test in with it to test out a couple proposed changes.

Nice work on the Vior`la list

That's not a mistake - that's intentional. Railheads intentionally have worse burst cannons to compensate for their main gun being so much better (even with the extra cost). It's not unusual for variant battle tanks to have different sponson weapons - think Predators and Predator Annihilators.

It's been burst cannons railheads for several years or more and is the same in the Epic-UK Tau list that unusually mirrors the Net-EA list rather than doing a list variant of their own. Please leave it as is!

Well, if you read my question three posts up, the reason I say this , is because I found an inconsistency between the PDF lists found here and the one found on NETEAs tournament pack lists. On that list all hammerheads are grouplisted and as such according to that list, all of them has smart missilesystems. So I asked here what version was correct, and the answer given me then, was that indeed all of them are meant to have smart missilesystems. Now I don’t know if that is a fairly new change then? Or if it’s not actually true? In either case , the important thing in my opinion is that what ever they have they have the same on both lists.

The files I had, including the 2019 Net EA TP, the Railheads are listed as still having the seeker missiles. However, I dove back through the forum and the list's earlier iterations and it looks like Railheads switched from seeker missiles to burst cannons in the jump from 6.6 approved to 6.71 developmental. I assumed it was then approved at some point by the ERC as it shows up in each subsequent list, including the 6.8 approved at the top of the thread. I would agree that the Railheads are intended to have burst cannons and will confirm with the ERC. I'm guessing with some of the AC shifts and requests, documents got crossed.

In that vein, if anyone from Epic UK has the word format documents of the list, I'd appreciate if you could send it along to me rather then need to reinvent the wheel and reconstruct it from scratch.

I asked Dave to take a look into the ERC archives to see when the Missile to Burst cannon ("M2BC") change was implemented. It looks like this change may have never been formally voted on, hence the state of the tournament pack. My guess is that this was such a minor change, folks over looked it in the debate regarding the lance rule.

Either way, there seems to be the support and testing in place for the change. I'll include that with the next submission to the ERC which will also address proposed changes to the Manta.
