The Eldar's Hydra Flak Tank accept no compromises.

The Firestorm Anti-Aircraft Tank, more commonly referred to simply as the Firestorm, is a pretty damned rare Eldar tank built on a Falcon chassis and is used primarily for anti-aircraft coverage in Eldar armies (hence the name). They are only employed in unique cases where Eldar aircraft are not available to achieve air superiority over the enemy, such as the Baran War, where only vehicles Falcon-sized or smaller could fit through the Wraithgates.

The Firestorms are never deployed in great numbers, and only when there is not enough Nightwings to provide effective fighter protection and airstrikes or the great threat of enemy air attacks.

In order to combat enemy aircraft, the Firestorm comes with the aptly named Firestorm Scatter Lasers which are a complex array of triple-barreled Scatter Lasers that combine high accuracy with the capability of sustained fire. Not only is this great against aircraft but also against enemy blobs that like to use Zerg rushes such as Orks or Tyranids, making them a nightmare against non-MEQ's. The Firestorm is also armed with twin-linked Shuriken Catapults and/or a Shuriken Cannon, and can be further equipped with Vectored Engines, Star Engines, Holo-fields and Spirit Stones.
