When it comes to the Standard Land Speeder, do you think the LS
Tornado or the FW LS
Tempest would be a better option to field in 9th edition and why?
Depends on what happens to the Tempest. We haven't seen it's new datasheet yet AFAIK
. As it stands currently it looks like the Tempest is currently slightly cheaper than a HB
Tornado. I wouldn't expect that to remain so. Prices probably won't be that different, but I would expect it to go up. Situationally they'll be better vs different targets Randomly fewer better shots vs reliably more worse shots. The Tempest Launcher is basically half a Grav Cannon with +1S in a range where +1S is less important than say 3 to 4 or 7 to 8.
I'd lean towards the Tornado though, if just because you magnetize the AC
and swap out the HB
