Gladiator (Battle Tank)
Designed by Belisarius Cawl, the Gladiator is based on the chassis of the Impulsor. Its s chassis is more heavily armored, with its open-topped transport bay replaced with a fully enclosed hull. This design relationship mirrors that of the classic Predator battle tank and the ubiquitous Rhino, sacrificing Transport capacity for reinforced armour, a powerful, turret-mounted primary weapon system, and sponsons.
The Gladiator comes in three forms:
- Gladiator Lancer – An anti-tank sniper equipped with a Heavy Laser Destroyer that is ideal for tearing through a foe's most durable war machines and monsters. Such is its range that it can eliminate threats before accompanying Space Marines encounter them.
- Gladiator Reaper - Anti-infantry variant that uses Tempest Bolters and a twin Onslaught Heavy Gatling Cannon.
- Gladiator Valiant - A short-ranged armor hunter specializing in escorting transports and troops. It uses twin Las-Talons and Multi-meltas to scrap armor and heavy infantry alike.
