Previously, I've always skipped straight past this stratagem because from what I can gather, Land Speeders aren't exactly a great choice in 8th edition, and nor are Whirlwinds.
However, I then had the realisation that I am actually taking landspeeders in my army - Sammael, Talonmaster and Darkshroud! D'oh! So requirement 1 of the stratagem is already complete. Requirement 2 is having a Whirlwind.
The vengeance launcher seems the better choice - S7, AP-1 D2 is basically an autocannon profile. 2D3 is fewer shots than the 8 shots of a Rifleman dread, but you gain the benefit of not needing line of sight AND you get a superior range (72"), all for 104 points. So Sammy/Talonmaster would be the active land speeder, stick a Lt next to the Whirlwind for re-roll wounds and this seems like a nice unit to take out backfield campers / lightly armoured vehicles.
So...anybody had any success with this combination? Any views on units that might do this role better?
