The Arquitor Bombard was a type of artillery tank used by the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.[1]


The Arquitor was designed to operate at the forefront of a Space Marine advance and was equipped with a reinforced chassis and brutal short range firepower. It was usually called upon to break the most stubborn enemy fortifications or to annihilate massed infantry and armor. As an infantry support platform, it lacked the speed of some other armor employed by the Space Marines but this was intentionally designed in order to allow it to be locked in formation with the warriors it supports.[4]

The Bombard could be equipped with a variety of weapons, most notably the Graviton Charge Cannon, Morbus Heavy Bombard[3], or Spicula Rocket System.[1] It also wielded sponson-mounted Heavy Bolters or Autocannons and a pintle-mounted twin-linked Bolter, Havoc Launcher or Combi-Weapon.[2]
