Domitar Battle-Automata

The Domitar Class Robot was a type of war robot used by the Adeptus Mechanicus during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. The last type of war robot to enter Mechanicum production before the Horus Heresy, the Domitar was a variant of the sophisticated ancient Conqueror Class Robot.[1]

Larger than the Castellax class it would serve beside, the Domitar was also swifter, designed to cross the battlefield at a high speed and built to crash into enemy positions. To this end it was given a shock-protected heavily armored frame and equipped with Graviton Hammers.[1] For long-range attacks, it was equipped with carapace mounted Missile Launchers. This armament allowed it to pulverise battle tanks and, as it would later prove, even Legiones Astartes Dreadnoughts in combat. As a line-breaker, the Domitar was unparalleled in the Mechanicum’s arsenal, and its tactical flexibility was further augmented with a missile launcher armed with a variety of munitions.[2]

A variant of the Domitar-Class Robot, the Domitar-Ferrum class, was used for the infamous Iron Circle.[3]
