Arlatax Class Robots were a type of war robot used by the Legio Cybernetica during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.

A variant of the ancient Conqueror Class developed on Xana, its design influenced the later Domitar Class. Despite its excellent performance as a rapid-moving shock unit, it never gained widespread acceptance in the greater Mechanicum as it was said that it had certain components not approved by Mars. This made repair and refit difficult for those without a direct line to Xana. In addition, rumors swelled that its Machine Spirit were prone to corruption. However as the Heresy ground on, both Xana and the loyalist Forge World Atar-Meridian used these robots.[1]

In battle, Arlatax Class Robots were most commonly equipped with two Arlatax Power Claws with inbuilt cannons, a Plasma Blaster, an Arc Scourge, and Frag Grenades.[1]
