Hey! I got 3 jetbikes from the Horus heresy Betrayal book. That means I can upgrade one bike with another weapon than heavy bolter.

I decided between these 2 since plasma cannon can blow me up.

Multi melta: 24" Str 8 AP1 2D6 penetration.
or
Volkite Culvarin: 45" Str6 AP5 Heavy 4 and a rule that works like this (If I cause 2 wounds on a unit they gain additional 2 hits with same stats as before)
So that means if I am lucky I can end up making 4 wounds/kills per round.

I am going to face mostly Dark eldar and some Imperial guard artillery/infantry army. (Highest armour value us somewhat near a chimera)

I got other heavy weapons but mostly aim for CCW.

Other things I got:
1 predator exocutioner.
Heavy weapon squad (3 Missile launchers 2 Autocannons)
Melta and plasma combis on termies.
Plasma blaster in Contemptor
Some plasma pistols here and there.
(Maybe a Storm eagle with lascannons)

I'd go for the Culverin which might be pretty great against enemy infantry. Multi-melta is just one shot and jetbikes' mobility should be helpful to attack vehicles from sides, and will be useless against DE paper vehicles.

You have to upgrade to the same weapon type in the entire heavy support squad.
Sometimes annoying, but that is legions for you.
