Opinions on Spartan Assault Tank, and a long time wish!

Hey Folks

I am looking for a way to deliver a large number of Khorne Bezerkers quickly up to my opponents deployment zone. I have looked at a few options, and I wonder what everyone's thoughts are on using Spartans. Are they worth the points? Do they hold up? Does their size make assaulting harder?

Any other suggestions I may have missed would be welcome as well.

Last thing:

Why can't GW make a stripped down Land Raider. Remove the Hull mount and the sponsons. Just have a single pintle mounted Multi-melta and a 20-25 transport capacity. This couldn't need to be more than 200pts right?

Things like D-strength and mass haywire and grav and melta really make me wary of sinking so many points into a single tank. When most folks are building their lists to be able to take down Knights... a Spartan isn't all that different.

That said, an assault vehicle that isn't the overpriced, small-capacity, drunken-weapon-combo Land Raider is very welcome!

...I just might rather take the Fire Raptor, since that dodges most anti-tank by the anti-tank having to snap fire against it, at least until the passengers unload. Of course, having to start in Reserve and not coming on until possibly T2, disembarking T3... is not exactly "quickly" delivered into the enemy deployment. Only "securely."
