Gladiator (Battle Tank)

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

The Gladiator is a fast and flexible Primaris Space Marine Grav Battle Tank.[1]


Overview

Designed by Belisarius Cawl, the Gladiator is based on the chassis of the Impulsor. Its chassis is more heavily armoured, 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 additional weaponry mounted in side sponsons.[3]

Variants

The Gladiator comes in three forms[1]:

  • 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.[1] Such is its range that it can eliminate threats before accompanying Space Marines encounter them.[2]
  • Gladiator Valiant - A short-ranged armor hunter specializing in escorting transports and troops.[2] It uses twin Las-Talons and Multi-meltas to scrap armor and heavy infantry alike.[1]
