Gorkanauts are a type of heavy Ork walker.
Built as an effigy to the Ork god Gork, the Gorkanaut possesses all the unsubtle brutality of its namesake. Gorkanauts are all about raw killing power, acting as linebreakers and spearheading Ork infantry assaults in battle. The walker is piloted by a Nob and is everything an Ork aspires to be: big, tough, loud, and destructive. This pilot is an outcast from their own tribe for crimes such as using fellow Orks as target practice, and once inside their machine will stomp on their former settlement as a way of revenge.
