The Atlas-class was a heavy thruster-powered bomb of Imperial manufacture, designed for air-to-ground bombardment. It was typically deployed against large ground targets, such as hardened bunkers, citadels, Titans, or Super Heavy Tanks.[1]

Atlas warheads were in production as far back as the Great Crusade; at the time of the Horus Heresy, several Atlas-class warheads were adapted for space-to-surface operations in order to disperse the Life Eater virus on Istvaan III.[2]
