Kharybdis Assault Claw
|This article is about the Drop Pod variant, for the Moon see Karybdis|
The Kharybdis Assault Claw was a type of Drop Pod used by the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. The Kharybdis is a monstrous drop pod capable of carrying large assault forces through the void and mounting significant firepower to blast a path through defending small craft. As a fully operational dropship, these craft serve as orbit-to-surface transports, a role that allows them to use the firepower of their storm launchers and melta cutters to scour clean their chosen landing zone before disembarking their deadly cargo.
Some aggressive commanders employed the Kharybdis as a tank hunter, ramming enemy armor in low-altitude attack runs.
