I'm playing a highly mobilised SM army (4 rhinos...) and my question is: Is the extra armour still worth it? My rhino's are still cheaper then previous edition (and even have a searchlight ^^) But do you rather spend those 60 points on something else?
I've been playing with 3 razorbacks in 5 games - with careful usage of smoke launchers and cover saves extra armor is not really needed.
Never lost a single razorback to shooting (and extra armor wont help that much in close combat) due to my lucky dice throwing .
But the extra armor still has its uses (particularly with land raiders as you need every bit of protection to get those terminators in close combat and you cannot afford to be stunned).
I'd say it's usually not worth it. On a pentrating hit you will only be stunned 1/6 of the time and the same on a glance. I just don't think it's worth that many points when you can almost buy another vehicle or squad.

i dont think its worth the cost on a low point transport.
I never let a vehicle hit the table without extra armor, but then again, someone always seems to be able to roll a 2 on me...
It's mostly up to playstyle I think
luck tends to favor the prepared, as they say, so i try and find the points to add the extra armor when possible.
