These days, the a predator has 1 more wound than the razorback, no transport capacity, and different weapon loadout options, but costs 37 points more. So my question is why wouldn't you use the razorback as a main battle tank?

Always before, the weaker armor values meant that the razorback was a fragile platform for the big guns. No more. Give your razorbacks twin lascannons or something. Twin assault cannons also look potentially horrifying.

By my reckoning the predator is 70 points more exspensive and that's without sponsons.

I just feel that my army needs something fast and hard hitting to bump it up from 1000 to 1500 points
