It seems that pilots are pretty similar across units. Perhaps a
generic pilot unit, like the one constructed below?

Then, determine how many units it takes to make a pilot stand, say 3-4 men?
1 bike unit = 1 pilot stand
2 attack bike stands = 1 pilot stand
3 Rhinos? = 1 pilot stand
2 Land Raiders? = 1 pilot stand

[though, depending on fluff, aren't rhino pilots not even full marines?]

        All isn't lost yet. He hasn't started using it as an
adjective yet. i.e. that Imperator is a kickass unit.
