Immolator

The Immolator is a variant of the Rhino chassis and used exclusively by the Adepta Sororitas as a transport.

History

The design specifications of the Immolator was first discovered within an ancient factory complex on Fornost, during the Icaria Crusade in M35.[1][2a] There a force of Frateris Templars captured an ancient factory complex intact, allowing an Adeptus Ministorum missionary team to freely explore its contents. Missionary Morben the Devout discovered databanks from the Dark Age of Technology and reported his findings to his superiors. knowing the value of this information to the Adeptus Mechanicus, the Ministorum used it as a bargaining chip for negotiations. Eventually the two organisations came to an agreement, the Fornosian Accords: the Mechanicus would have access to the databanks, and in exchange the Ministorum would have exclusive claim to any new technologies discovered.[2a]

After inspecting through the databanks, the only new design to be found was for a flame-thrower tank. Combining this knowledge with known STC designs for the Rhino, the Tech-priests of Mars came up with the Immolator and began exclusive production of it for the Ministorum.[2a]

Design

Immolators are armed with twin-linked Heavy Flamers as their primary armament. 'Sanctis' pattern-variants replace these with twin-linked Heavy Bolters, while the 'Justice' pattern-variant replaces them with twin-linked Multi-meltas. Space taken up by ammunition allows the Immolator to only carry a squad of six Sisters of Battle, which they deploy close to their objectives and advances in support. However, the Immolator does carry slightly more armour than the Rhino.[2a]

The Immolator can be upgraded with Blessed Ammunition (if armed with Heavy Bolters), a Holy Icon, Holy Promethium (if armed with twin Heavy Flamers), a Hunter-killer Missile, Laud Hailers, Dozer Blades, Extra Armour, a Searchlight and Smoke Launchers.[2b]
