It is true either termies or their LRs cannot live up to worth in SM2, but
consider the points cost!
One terminator is definately worth more points than one veteran stand, so
four terminators come to over 200 (say 250) points. Calculate yourself
what a transport LR is worth in points. It is worth dropping terminators
in t-hawks! You loose the LRs but they are mere transport and will get
killed by bikes anyway. Killing 10 units for breaking the company is very
difficult if no LRs are on the table.
