my Phantom titan :o)
No a titan isn't cannon fodder, it's one of the most sophisticated
weapon you have and you must use it carefully, obvously an Orks don't
(just try to figure out a "careful" ork, bah!) for this reason orkish
titans are so strong, every army have it's peculiarity, and you don't
have to look for others advantages, hust use well yours :o)

consider these two things, template shape of a gargant si so wide that
you hit 80% of the time and ther is no reliability in power shields or
most of the weapons.
