Vs Armour Value 12, you need 2 hits to cause a damaging result, and one in three damaging results is a kill. Therefore you need (on average, approximately) 6 Lance shots to kill one vehicle.
At 500 points most people have 2 vehicles at best, so if you have 5 lances, they should all be dead by turn 3 at the worst. That leaves you 2-3 turns to pour fire into any heavily armoured infantry (and frankly, 15 Lance shots should kill anything bar TH/SS termies).
On the other hand if you have Dizzies, you get 2 lance shots, so every two turns you get to roll on the damage chart (on average, approximately), so you'll destroy one vehicle by turn three and another by turn 6. Not quite so impressive.
90% of people think they are above average.
Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.
