Not really. You're look at max 72 shots, ~48 hits, 40 wounds, 6.67 failed Saviours. So... 12 damage. At most. Realistically, you will have a top row damaged Riptide and 15 dead Shield Drones. Most Tau bring 30-40 of them.

I used to run 6x Dakkabots with 6x Ryzaphron with Daggers. Totally plowed through Tau. Kill all the Drones and maybe one Riptide, KO the Riptides with plasma the next turn.


Ryza plasma does 3 though?
My maths: 42 shots on average, hitting on 3´s with reroll 1 and wounding on 2´s equals ~ 27 wounds. Tau will fail ~ 4.5 passes ~ 13,6 wounds.
Sure the Tau player might reroll a 1, but so you might reroll one of your low number of shots so that balances kind of out. So total you have a dead or atleast a low bracket Riptide.

Mars Spearhead

The amount of shooting looks brutal Oo I would be worried against melee armies like Nids / GSC / Orks....

1 low bracketed riptide is not helping. They have a strat for 1 CP that lets it act like they are in their highest bracket.

I just remember doing some dice tool estimates the other day and getting an average of 15 wounds vs a riptide surrounded by drones (with each destroyer firing 3.5 times) so you getting 12 wounds from almost twice as many shots seemed off, haha. Was wondering if maybe my own maths had been erroneous.
