Thanks for the speedy reply. Do you rate the Redeemer? I think it might be a rather nice one, my regular opponent has a single lonely Meltagun, and then 3 Obliterators and occasionally a Termicide squad (oh, how 5th edition!).
The only issues I have with Land Raiders in general is they're single purpose (terminator transport), and tend to die to melta. However what you've said can only be good news - IMO this is the best standard variant of Land Raider, so I would say this is certainly an option. Obliterators aren't an issue provided they're not within 18", as I don't rate Lascannons for high AV tank hunting.
Listen to that wise man.
