The Tauros rapid assault vehicle is a sturdy all-terrain vehicle used mainly on the frontier worlds of the Imperium. Some have been adapted to serve in specialised Imperial Guard Regiments, notably the Elysian Drop Troops.
The Tauros employed by the Elysian drop regiments are further adapted to be lightweight and thus deployable from a Valkyrie. The Standard Tauros is a 4x4 with either a dorsal mounted heavy Flamer or Auxilary grenade launcher, manned by a gunner.
All Tauros are equiped with Galvanic motor technology allowing them to press ahead even after taking damage to their traction.
The Tauros Venator is a further modified version of the Tauros, the principle change being the replacement of the standard anti-infantry weapon with a heavier weapon such as an Autocannon or Lascannon. The increased energy/munition reserves required for this weapon means the rear of the vehicle has to be extended and an extra pair of wheels installed to maintain vehicle stability. These modifications prevent the Tauros Venator from being airlifted by a standard Valkyrie, they are thus carried into combat by Sky Talon Valkyries, which are equipped to deal with heavy loads.
The heavy weapons and high maneuverability of the Venator variant make it a favoured vehicle employed by the Elysians, who are often left without the heavy support needed to take on enemy armour after a grav-chute into enemy territory.
