Kharybdis Assault Claw

The Kharybdis Assault Claw was a type of Drop Pod used by the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy.[1]

The Kharybdis is a monstrous drop pod capable of carrying large assault forces through the void and mounting significant firepower to blast a path through defending small craft. As a fully operational dropship, these craft serve as orbit-to-surface transports, a role that allows them to use the firepower of their storm launchers and melta cutters to scour clean their chosen landing zone before disembarking their deadly cargo.[1]

Some aggressive commanders employed the Kharybdis as a tank hunter, ramming enemy armor in low-altitude attack runs.[1]
