Used in a support role, raking ground targets with punishing strafing runs, the Tiger Shark Fighter-Bombers are an essential part of the Air Caste forces. Larger than the Barracudas and packing twice the firepower, these behemoths of the sky can enagage enemy aircraft effectively. Also capable of carrying ground units, Tiger Sharks can clear an objective before deploying assets to hold the position.
This box lets you build two Tiger Shark Fighter-Bombers. The standard AX-1-0-2 is armed with two railguns, while the AX-1-0-3 variant trades them out for two burst cannons and the AX-1-0-4 with paired ion cannons. All of them are armed with missile pods built into their wings, and they include drone ports to add close or mid-range support with cyclic ion blasters and long-barreled burst cannons. A Seeker missile bay can also be added to take out crucial targets.
– 2 plastic T’au Air Caste Tiger Shark AX-1-0-2 miniatures (can also be built as AX-1-0-3 and AX-1-0-4 variants)
– 2 Aeronautica Imperialis bases (each base designates the model’s front, rear and side arcs, has speed and altitude dials, as well as a clear stand to connect the aircraft to the base)
– 1 T’au Aircraft transfer sheet
The rules for using these miniatures in games of Aeronautica Imperialis can be found in both Aeronautica Imperialis: Skies of Fire and the Taros Air War Campaign Book.
