capability to provide to the troops around it; say a 12 fp with a range
of 15 cm, and the close support ability. Give it an assault of 12,
representing the effect of short range guns on assaulting troops, and
compares appropriately with a leviathon. Otherwise, you run the very
real risk of pod deployed troops killing it easily in the assault phase,
wasting scores of troops inside. You could also run the risk of the
transport losing a CC/ff, being surrounded by supperior troops and be
unable to move or deploy troops due to snap fire. This would leave no
choice but to wait for reinforcements or assaulting with IG (ugh).
