I love my penitent engine squadrons now. 3 Vehicles capable of throwing out between 12-27 str 10 AP 2 hits at ini. With 6 Heavy flamers for offensive and defensive purposes. Immune to shaken and stunned. Immobilized has no effect. And a lucky glance no longer kills me.
So squadrons are definitely not pointless in 6th edition. It just seems that some squadrons written for old army books don't do a very good job of taking advantage of the new rules.

All multi-model units now have the ability to only move some models in the unit, and leave others stationary. A big boost for squadrons and units with heavy weapons troops. A shaken vehicle can move, while unshaken squadron mates fire normally. Squadrons are also safer in assault now, as hits and damage results go on the vehicle actually assaulted until it is dead, rather than being spread out among the squadron evenly.
