|This article is about the Chaos Fighter aircraft; for the the Daemon Weapon, see Hellblade.|
Hell Blades are aircraft designed to fill the role of interceptors, employed by Chaos forces, including Chaos Space Marines and the more numerous Chaos militias such as the Blood Pact.[Needs Citation]
They are used as fast and agile interceptors, engaging enemy aircraft while the larger Hell Talon fighter-bomber devastates ground targets. In this role they are armed with two twin-linked autocannons.[Needs Citation] The Hell Blade has a sleek, slim and deadly form, and is thought to be a product of a forge world in the Eye of Terror. Hell Blades are sometimes daemonically possessed; in other cases they are piloted by a servitor hard-wired into the cockpit.[Needs Citation] The Hell Razor class is a variant which was used by the Blood Pact on Enothis.
Hell Blade's saw massive use in Abaddon the Despoiler's Thirteenth Black Crusade and became a common sight above besieged Imperial worlds. They did battle with heavily outnumbered Imperial Navy Fighter Wings, and claims exist that over 2,000 Hell Blades have been lost over Cadia alone.
