The Space Marines Drop Pod entry for both AB3 and AB2.2c is incorrect.

The basic cost for a Space Marines Drop Pod is 30 points. A Drop Pod is armed with a Storm Bolter. As an option, a Drop Pod can be upgraded to carry a Deathwind Launcher at +20 points. (Source: Space Marines Codex, page 35). The operative word in the options listing for the Space Marines Drop Pod is "upgraded". In this case "upgraded" means that for 20+ points the Deathwind Launcher takes the place of the standard equipment Storm Bolter.

The Space Marines Drop Pod was never intended to have both the standard Storm Bolter and a Deathwind Launcher. At present there are numerous Space Marines players warping the rules by playing Space Marines Drop Pods with both the standard Storm Bolter and a Deathwind Launcher. Considering that at anywhere else the point cost of the Storm Bolter and the "Power of the Machine Spirit" would cost 35 points the Space Marines Drop Pod is a steal at only 30 points.
