Aegis Defence Line
An Aegis Defence Line is a type of Imperial fortification. Aegis Defence Lines are barricades built from crenelated armoured sections that link together into a solid shieldwall. Their simple design means that they can be built and deployed at great speed, lending them the nickname of ‘instant fortresses’. Aegis Defence Lines are ideally suited for commanders wishing to hold ground in enemy territory or establish defensive perimeters until such time when larger, more permanent fortifications can be constructed. They are typically equipped with an Icarus-pattern Lascannon and quad-mounted Autocannon array.
