Volkite Charger

The Volkite Charger is a type of Volkite Weapon that was used during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy by the Legiones Astartes and Mechanicum.

Whilst not benefiting from the range or power of its larger cousins, the charger retains the volkite beam's deflagrating effects and allows its wielder a greater degree of movement. Volkite chargers are often employed by Legion Tactical Support Squads.[1]
