Well the point of pods is that they aren't benefitting from any of the Terminators rules, yet the Terminators themselves still satisfy all of their rules and stipulations.
It wouldn't be an argument if we were asking can you attach a character and assault with them

I know that, my point was that our Landraiders still say they can take Terminator armoured models, which is an outdated rule from when Terminators wouldn't fit in other transports, not as a dedicated transport but just in general.
I assumed Storm Ravens were the same, saying they could take jump packs from a time when most stuff couldn't.

Yeah, Like I said I asked and my group rejected it.
So I've made a Mk. II version of this list, now 2000pts.

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late
