Protected by frontal armor superior to that of the Astartes Thunderhawk, The Orion was equipped with a Arachnus heavy blaze cannon and Lastrum Bolt Cannon that could swiftly clear a landing zone of enemy infantry and armor with brutal efficiency.
It is unknown if it is still in use in the 41st Millennium.
