Sabre Gun Platform
The Sabre Gun Platform is a static defensive emplacement used by the Imperial Guard and Planetary Defense Forces. They are favoured by armoured and support regiments, and regiments tasked to defend a strategic location, where they are issued to Heavy Weapons Platoons in place of their normal load-out. Two Guardsmen are needed to crew the platform, which features duel heavy weapon mounts able to be fitted with standard Imperial Guard weapons for ease of supply and maintenance. Common mountings include twin-linked Heavy Bolters for anti-personnel duty, twin-linked Lascannons for anti-armor firepower, and either twin-linked Autocannons or quad-mounted Heavy Stubbers for air defence. In place of weaponry some Sabre platforms will instead mount a massive Searchlight for illuminating targets in darkness.
