Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum β


A Kasr is a fortress-citadel located at the heart of each city on the planet Cadia. Kasrkin are Storm Trooper units specifically trained to defend Kasrs.[Needs Citation] Each Kasr is protected by rings of massive earthworks studded with gun emplacements and weapons batteries and separated by an inner moat. Passage over the moat is controlled by hydraulic bascule bridges, each one guarded by a heavily armed barbican, and defended by the many armored fortifications and shatrovies overlooking it. Once inside, the streets of each Kasr are laid out in elaborate geometric patterns, resembling intricate puzzles from the air . Given the Cadian's mastery of urban warfare, this layout allows them to hold each Kasr for months, even years, should the outer defenses fall.[1]
