I'm addressing this in the main 40K forum because there are several armies that can take advantage of the Rhino APC.
I'm thinking, they should be AV 12 at the front and sides and AV 10 at the sides.
Considering how fast or surviveable all other races APCs I think that rhinos are embarrasingly bad.
With the current rules it makes more sense to run behind them then to actually get inside them. It's a tad silly.
The point cost should remain roughly the same, maybe take them up to 60 points.
What are people's thoughts?

I think its a good idea. Even though it is a transport it does get blown up(And anything inside it)quite quickly,you can't use it very much past turn one or two really.
And it is better to run behind them it seems I hate to say it,its more of a steel coffin more then ever.
I think that the rhino is just fine the way it is. As a DH player with access to both the rhino and the Chimera, which has the armor values you're talking about, the Rhino usually lasts the whole game while the Chimera gets blown up relatively quickly. That extra point of armor isn't going to do much good more anti-armor weaponry and it leaves the side armor vulnerable to small-arms fire. The rhino on the other hand has the armor on the side which makes it much more survivable against small arms fire. Also, these vehicles are designed to go behind the enemy line, the side armor will be shot at a lot more than you think.
1500 years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the Universe
500 years ago everybody knew the world was flat
5 minutes ago you knew humans were alone on the planet
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow
I for one would like to see the Rhino get beefed.
It doesn't seem to make a very good APC when the armour is so low. Basically, you can only call it a Personnel Carrier.
But the cost should be raised if this is done, make it 65 points.
And it wouldn't hurt to make the repair rule a little more likely [/wishful thinking]
