WOULD 2 dev squads be good
That's the exact reason why most players use Vindis in pairs. it's much tougher to avoid two tanks.The only problem I have with the vindicator is its sphere of influence. You say it allows you to control the flow of the game but with the 24" range it's too easily avoided. A predator w/lascannons, a whirlwind or a dev squad with lascannon or missile launcher easily outranges the vindi. Add to that it is no more heavily armored than the predator and ill I've seen em do is serve as a first turn distraction lasting till second turn if theyre lucky.
