I bought the Piranhas for the models, but i would like to replace them ideally for a more competitive list; thoughts?

The SunFire suit combo (your bodyguards) are a waste on a BS 3 model. You pay 44 pts for 3 different weapons when you hardly can hit with them. Remove one of them and get Targetting Arrays instead to make the 2 guns you have left count
I also think your HQ is way overprotected. 6 SD is a bit too many for my taste, Id stop at max 3 to save points.

Targetting Arrays are a steal for Pirahnas, get them! You will not regret that.

Id settle for either ASS or TA on the Broadsides. Multitrackers arent that hot unless you give them plasma rifles too. SMS dont complement the Railguns very well, and beside that youre going to use them to pop tanks anyway, at which SMS wont help at all...

I've replaced the sunfire for helios by removing the missile pods.

Good call for a commander and bodyguard i think as they have more wounds!
