Overview

The Repressor is was originally used as an armoured personnel carrier by the Adeptus Arbites as a means of crowd suppression.[1] The Sisters of Battle first used the Repressor on the Cardinal World of Avignor during the Avignor Uprising, when agent-provocateurs of a heretical sect caused a crowd of a million pilgrims to riot. The local Precincts was overrun by the mob, and the Battle Sisters of the Sacred Rose Preceptory, currently guarding the Cardinal's Palace, offered their aid. They replaced the Repressor's non-lethal weaponry of water cannons and grenade launchers with heavy flamers, and took to the streets to purge the heretics with holy fire.[1]

For years only the Sacred Rose used the Repressors, causing anger with other Orders, until the 291st Synod Prioris of Terra where the issue was hotly debated. Eventually it was decreed that the victory on Avignor had been the Emperor's divine will, and that the Repressor be included in the canon list of sanctioned vehicles.[1]

The Repressor is armed with a cupola-mounted Storm Bolter and Pintle-mounted Heavy Flamer, with Dozer Blades as standard equipment. Its modified transport compartment allows all six passengers to fire from within the protection of the vehicle. Adepta Sororistas models can be further upgraded with Blessed Ammunition, Extra Armour, a Holy Icon, Holy Promethium, a Hunter-killer Missile, Laud Hailers, a Searchlight and Smoke Launchers.[Needs Citation]
