I would only take the redeemer if you are transporting assault terminators. Send the redeemer in, fire, terminators disembark and assault. Sorted.
As for LR that aren't transporting, a crusader unleashes a massive 4 S6 AP4 shots, 18 S5 AP4 shots, all twin-linked. Nothing able to instant death marines, but the sheer amount of firepower is bound to bring a lot of marines down. It lacks obvious anti-tank capabilities though.
A normal LR gets 3 S5 AP4 shots, and 2 S9 AP2 shots, all twin-linked. If you shoot at infantry, I think the crusader will kill more marines, even though it won't ID, due to the sheer amount of fire. The normal LR is obviously better at popping heavy armour though.
