Tank Commander[1]

Tank Commanders are Imperial Guard officers who lead formations of Battle Tanks.[1]


A Tank Commander rides to battle in the cupola of a mighty Leman Russ battle tank. They typically lead a squadron of Leman Russ tanks. These grizzled men are virtually one with their machine, possessing an implicit knowledge of armoured warfare in all its forms. Granted their pick of the armoured fighting vehicles available to their regiment, they are further entitled to pick their crew from the finest veterans. The average Tank Commander is therefore a steely eyed ace, heading up a crew of the very best their regiment has to offer.[1]

These veteran armour commanders will often be assigned temporary leadership of infantry or artillery assets.[1]
