Is it just me, or it strange that the Land Raider Crusader comes with extra armor? What is the point of extra armor when you have power of the machine spirit? O_o
So you can turn when shaken
Yes, what Insanity said
extra armor lets you turn
the machine spirit lets you fire guns

Personally I'd rather they replaced PotMS with EA and shaved another 15 pts off the cost... LRs are too expensive.
Everything else at that points value has stuff to stop it dying so easily - living metal, holo fields etc. Land Raiders are just too fragile by comparison these days! 2 Structure Points would probably do it! :-P
The reason the land raider is so many points, and does not have any of those neat technologies your talking about, it because the LR is both a tank, and a transport. Which is why IMHO it is such a colossal pile of dog turds.
If you're using it as a transport, then your moving 12" a turn, and cannot shoot, so your wasting it's abilities as a tank.
If you're using it as a tank, then it's only moving 6" and any passangers can go just as fast walking, so your wasting it as a transport.
It's just a bad combination. Like having 2 Heavy Bolters, and 2 Lascannons in a devestator squad.
I totally agree with Sinjin.
The pred. annilator works best for a lascannon platform. And if it wasn't for the
uncertainity of the drop pod's arival I would say the pod's the best transport(IMO).
Back to the subject....
With PotMS you can still move 6'' while shaken but you can't turn. Adding EA to a landraider
crusader is really a waste. I plan to assault what's ahead of me anyway and if I have to
turn I've missed the mark and my battle plan has changed on me.
