Kataphron Battle Servitor
Completely severed from all emotion and independent thought, these machines are little more than a living weapon controlled by Tech-Priests. They are much larger and more powerful than the Servitors used by the rest of the Imperium.
Kataphron Battle Servitors come in two main types:
Kataphron Breachers are used by the Mechanicum as a living shield and battering ram, smashing apart enemy lines. They are deadly in close quarters combat, equipped with a large array of weapons that can include Heavy Arc Rifles, Torsion Cannons, Arc Claws, Hydraulic Claws, and Plasma Calivers.
These machines are also equipped with Kataphron Breacherplate, powerful cybernetically-enhanced titanium-laced metal and plastisteel that turns aside blades and bullets alike.
Kataphron Destroyers are used as heavy weapon platforms by the Mechanicum, ensuring that nothing will be left of their enemies but molten sludge. They are equipped with a large amount of heavy weaponry that includes Grav Cannons, Phosphor Blasters, Plasma Culverins, and Flamers.
For protection, these machines are equipped with Kataphron Demiplate, lighter armour that allows better cooling of its heavy weaponry. Nonetheless, this cybernetically-enhanced heavy steel provides a great deal of protection.
