Leviathan, Epic-scale, super-heavy warmachine

The Leviathan super-heavy assault transport is based on the same chassis as the Colossus. Built by the Squats, this awesome vehicle was supplied to the Imperial Guard as part of the mutual exchange of materials between the Squat Homeworlds and the Imperium of Man. The Imperium uses its Leviathans as gigantic army group command centres for coordinating the vast numbers of men and vehicles found in Imperial Guard Regiments. The Squats employed the Leviathan as a massive troop carrier to transport special "Ironbreaker" Brotherhoods of Squat warriors into combat.[1][2]

Standing over 90 metres tall,[3] each Leviathan contains extensive communication and surveillance equipment - including satellite uplinks and tiny flying spy robots - to allow a Colonel and his command staff to coordinate an entire regiment all at once. It also has room to carry an entire infantry company into battle.[1][2] Despite appearances, some Leviathans have luxurious rooms deep in their interior for formal officers' functions and events.[4]

Protecting the Leviathan are thick armour plating and four Titan-scale Void Shields. Its primary weapon is the massive Doomsday Cannon mounted in the prow of the vehicle. It also carries a turreted Battlecannon, Lascannons and Bolters that can provide all-around protection.[1][2]
