Forge World did not disappoint.
It is larger than the more common Falcon grav-tanks but smaller than a true Engine of Vaulthough it shares superficial similarities. It is believed that only Craftworld Mymeara makes use of this unique vehicle, though whether they intend to share the design, especially with their Alaitocii allies, is a matter eldzr grave importance to the Ordo Xenos.

While the Lynx lacks the sheer firepower found in a Scorpion or Cobrait makes up for it in speed and maneuverability and is capable of limited flight. It is crewed by a single pilot who controls the craft from within an encapsulated cockpit, and while heavily armoured it boasts a Titan -grade Holo-field making it near-invisible to Imperial sensors.
Its primary weapon is either a Pulsar for attacking armoured foes or, more rarely, a Sonic Lance for superior anti-infantry firepower. From the start it has had one standout ability — it can fly! IN previous editions of the game, you could make the Lynx a flyer for a turn, giving it fantastic movement, but without the ability to fire.
Which in realistic game terms was useless. It was handy for Apocalypse games on enormous tables where you could quickly move from one flank to the other but overall never came up much in standard 40k games.
More importantly I wanted to see if the flying rules would stay or go. The two main weapons are both impressive:.
The Lynx Pulsar has two firing modes for high to very high strength targets. In most games of 40k, the key it getting rid of big chunks of infantry fast. Elddar Sonic Lance is just the tool to do it.
Add in a Crystal Targeting Matrix to ignore the -1 for firing heavy weapons on the move as close range. Up in the skies!

The funniest part of the Lynx is its Lumbering Flyer rules which are identical to the standard flyer rules for Imperial aircraft. HA — the Eldar have high standards! According to the fluff the Lynx might be the oldest vehicle the Eldar keep in service, from the era Humans first met the Aeldari — but it can still get the job done.
