The Arcus Launcher are a type of advanced Missile Launcher mounted on Space Marine Sicaran Arcus artillery tanks during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.

The Arcus launcher is based upon the rotary missile launcher developed for the Xiphon strike fighter, however the greater size of the mounting on the Sicaran hull allows for a more complex feed mechanism and the employment of multiple warhead types. Overtime, the advanced Arcus Launchers have broken down and in the 41st Millennium Sicaran Arcus tanks are commonly equipped with more basic rotary missile systems.[1]
