Astartes Grav Chute

From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

Astartes Grav Chutes are used on the occasions when Space Marine Scout Squads must deploy stealthily and are unable to utilise more common methods like teleportation or drop pods. Grav chutes rely on suspensor fields to counter gravity and slow descent. Unlike a jump pack, which allows the user to leap into the air, a grav chute’s lower power output only allows for a safe, guided fall such as a combat drop from a transport.[1]

Primaris Space Marines equipped with Mark X Phobos Armour also utilize grav chutes, in particular Reiver Squads[2][4] and Vanguard Suppressors.[3]
