EDIT- and stop editing your posts without saying you have edited them
Anyway, the AP doesnt matter, the LRBT will be shooting at MEQ's who should be in cover, granting them a save anyway... and, a 6+ or 5+ save is little use against the wound output of the punisher!

Oh sure. You bring your 1.5K list with a 600pt liability, I'll bring my 1.5K AV12 list posted as in the forums, and you go on and pop the mass of light vehicles and transports and slaughter the 40+ T3 troop models.
For the price of 3 kitted punishers you can almost get 3 triple heavy bolter LRBTs and a rocket pod valkyrie. I'd say that's far better all around than 3 punishers.
With that said, I really don't want to see this topic locked, lets all try and be civil please.
3 punishers with sponsons and no heavy stubbers costs 600pts...not 400. The base cost is 180pts.
An LRBT with 3 HB's is 170pts with plasma cannons it is 190, a LRP with 3 HB's is 200, with a stubber it's 210 and with PC's its 230.

You think I'm being impolite or indecent? Very well, I apologise. That sort of horrific mistake does rather hinder my considering you informed on the topic though.
Also without the sponsons, there is no way the LRP even comes close to comparing with the LRBT even in killing weeny units. At that point LRBT's with sponsons are still cheaper and *way* more threatening and cost efficient than sponsonless LRP's
You are also forgetting that with Pask i am hitting on a 3+ and he is only 50pts..
... erm, are you sure you know what you're talking about? As units get bigger the normal Battle Cannon's hitting ability gets better, whereas the Punisher's doesn't.

I still have not seen a single argument from you that has supported this. The LRBT is a greater threat to MEQ's, it's a great threat to vehicles, it's about on par as threat to weeny units like Orks, and it's got triple the range and is much cheaper. There is no way one can claim the punisher is a more cost effective or versatile unit. It *might* have a slight advantage in wound output if it's shooting at weeny units under 24", but in every other situation, there is no way one can claim the LRBT is not clearly superior, and it is much cheaper to boot., the punisher is at worst, on par with the LRBT
Also, by adding Pask in, you've just made 1 Punisher cost almost as much as *two* Leman Russ Battle Tanks. In almost every imaginable situation except maybe against a Daemon Prince that isn't a CSM one or against maybe AV10/11 vehicles the two LRBT's are going to be far superior to a single Punisher with Pask.
Colonel Jacka: I didn't submit an article! Do you want me to? Printed documents tend to have errors. In living documents observed ones can be dealt with if pointed out.
Vaktathi, you're using weeny to describe horde-like units, I would normally use it to describe small units, be they SM combat squads or small Burna squads. Is your use standard?
I have no idea I use the term weeny to describe anything that's T3 or 4 with a 5+ or 6+ save. Stuff the Bolters and even Lasguns are good at killing.
Okay. I'll bear in mind how you use the term then. Thanks.
