Vyper Jetbikes definitely.

They're fast, versatile, deadly and relatively cheap. Also, they're fun to make and paint. :P

i've come to the conclusion that rezzy is the patron saint of vypers -.^x

i think it'd vary against the army, against tau i'd prolly shoot for the hawks, anything else i'd be tempted to say viper with eml

Hmm...I personally like guardian jebikes myself even though they are overpriced. I find them solid and dependable and good for distracting enemy fire. I find vypers a little too unreliable with their weak armour and average BS.

My favourite is most definately Vypers. They are awsome models that have the room to be painted using different patterns/schemes to create some striking looks.

From a playing perspective they are cheap, fast, versatile and annoying (hard to knock over sometimes due to skimmer abilities), mobile weapon platforms...invaluable in Saim Hann armies especially!

Yeah, if you keep them over 24" away from enemy units, and keep your speed up, you can go a long way with Vypers. Spirit Stones wok wonders too.

don't get me wrong, i love vypers, but i prefer to use a Swooping Hawk Exarch delivery unit instead. I've had him get 19 hits once on a unit...that guy is so fun to use against T3 armies it's hilarious.
