You might want to do a search, this topic has been covered several times.

In general, Rhinos are better.
However, there are some situations where a Drop Pod can be more beneficial. For example, Sternguard.

Drop Pods against artillery/entrenched enemies. Getting a dreadnought or a select squad of marines behind your enemy's line to strike at the soft stuff is priceless. Kills lots, disorganizes lots, causes panic, buys time.

Thanks!
My base army is this
1st Captain Ingo Pech (fluff)
5 sternguard as bodyguard (no real command squads in those days
2 tacticals
1 veteran dred.

I was thinking rhinos for the tacticals, and then a second captain with the stern for drop pods? or a secon sternguard squad with drops? The only thing is, I dont want them to scatter off the edge...

Rhinos are much better, stern or classic.

Give stern heavy weapons and play bunker the same way as you would do with the tac lads.

Surely razorbacks were not used pre-heresy so they make no sense in loyalist alpha legion?

Secondly I think that hellfire rounds ONLY apply to STANDARD bolters.

Razorbacks were indeed invented after the heresy (the justification used for C:CSM not having them, for one)

They also apply to the various combi-bolters.
I even believe it is in the FAQ
