Avenger Gatling Cannon on a Knight Crusader[1]

The Avenger Gatling Cannon is a type of rapid-fire projectile weapon used by Imperial Knights, most prominently on the Crusader and Warden Class.[1]

The highly feared avenger gatling cannon is like an oversized assault cannon, though its larger calibre shells are more destructive and its rate of fire is even more prodigious. A single blazing volley from the rotary weapon can stitch a pattern of death across the foe’s battle lines, causing charges to falter and fail or destroying entire attack columns of light vehicles.[2]

Trivia


Just like Onslaught Gatling Cannon on Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought, Avenger Gatling Cannon resembles the GAU-8 Avenger 30mm gatling, found mouted on A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft, which fires 3900 rounds per minute and is able to penetrate the armor of light tanks and vehicles.
