I’m thinking about kit bashing some grot mega tanks, originally I was planning on using a Leman Russ for a base, but it might be too small. So would a land raider work better, or is the imperial guard tank just the right size, or perhaps their is another chassis would work better?

The Baneblade’s secondary weapon is its hull-mounted demolisher cannon. Of sturdier construction with a shorter, wider-mouthed barrel, the demolisher also fires rocket-assisted shells and uses the same method as the main cannon to vent exhaust gases. A reinforced mount allows the Baneblade to advance while firing the Demolisher. Demolisher shells can easily shatter ferrocrete and even liquify soft targets with their shockwaves alone. The second gunner, located in the tank’s forward compartment, is in charge of aiming and firing the demolisher cannon through auger sights while a rail sled from the magazine feeds shells into the weapon.The Lucius-pattern Baneblade only slightly varies from the Mars-pattern. Due to increased frontal armour thickness, the Lucius Baneblade weighs more, because of the generally inferior quality of ore supplied to the forges of Lucius compared with that supplied to Mars.

Variations on this standard include some Baneblades with a second set of side sponsons, while others may have them removed in place of even more side armour plating. As a final addition some Baneblades will include a pintle-mounted Heavy Stubber or Storm Bolter and/or a Hunter-Killer Missile.

The extra weight led to increased strain on the engine and resulted in fires by overheating and more frequent engine failures. The Tech-Adepts of Lucius over the years managed to increase the engine capacity of Lucius-pattern Baneblades to take this strain. The most obvious exterior evidence of this are the twin exhausts, better internal cooling and transmission to the drive wheels which aided in raising the performance of engine. It is believed that this changes give the Lucius-pattern Baneblade approximately the same performance as its slightly lighter Mars variant, though the comparative field tests between this two patterns never been allowed.

The Baneblade is the primary super-heavy tank used by the Imperial Guard and is one of the largest and oldest tanks used by the Imperium. These massive machines often serve as the command vehicles for entire regiments or spearhead armoured attacks, organized into their own super-heavy companies. Such is the power of a Baneblade that nothing short of another war engine, such as a Titan, would dare to face one in single combat.
Wrapped in layers of Ceramite and Plasteel the Baneblade is among the most well-protected vehicles employed by the Imperial Guard; indeed it can survive countless weapon impacts which would reduce most other tanks to molten slag. Not even solid slugs fired by the feared Railguns mounted on Tau Hammerhead skimmer-tanks will penetrate the Baneblade’s frontal glacis, though a trio of simultaneous impacts can tear off one of the side compartments and cause spalling fragments within the interior. The frontal armour is even tough enough to withstand several seconds of fire from a Turbo Laser before the beam melts its way through. Against some weapons though the Baneblade is no match, as even a single shot from the Shadowsword’s Volcano Cannon is capable of atomising this massive tank. When necessary the Baneblade is also equipped with Smoke Launchers to produce a cloud of blinding smoke.

The Baneblade’s tertiary weapons consist of hull-mounted twin-linked heavy bolters, which can be fired by the driver when necessary, and two side sponsons, each one with a twin-linked heavy bolter and a lascannon. Each of the side-mounted heavy bolters has a limited 90° angle of fire though the lascannons, mounted on turrets atop the sponsons, have a larger range of 270°. The third gunner remotely controls these weapons from his station on the command deck, assisted by the third loader, but indeed any of the Baneblade’s many weapons can be remotely aimed and fired from this station. Ammunition for the heavy bolters are supplied by autoloaders which draw from 4,000-round hoppers each. If the autoloaders jam or malfunction, the third loader has to clear out and refill the entire system by means of the sponson access hatch located outside the tank, a dangerous task in the middle of combat. The lascannons draw energy directly from the powerplant, but if their shunts burn out from overuse those too must be replaced, though the cabling for these are located in the lower deck.The Baneblade is primarily divided into three separate decks. The first is the gunnery deck located in the tank’s turret, where the first gunner and first loader are stationed. Entrance into the turret is provided by two hatches on top – one jutting out of the turret’s side to form an observation cupola, the other ringed by vision blocks – which as with all hatches on the Baneblade can be opened only through fingerprint scanners. In the center of the turret is the shell elevator and turret ladder well to access the command deck while the rear of the turret is taken up by a secondary command station for use by the tank’s commander when necessary.

What is a Kustom Mega Blasta?
Kustom Mega Blasta [1b] Ork Mekboys sometimes build a weapon that is far greater than the sum of its parts, a marvel of Ork technology that fires a focused blast of pure energy at its targets. Known as Kustom Mega-Blasta, it instantly vaporises targets even if they wear terminator armour.
The lower deck is accessed through a kidney-shaped slot in the front-left of the command deck, and is notable for allowing an average person to almost stand up straight. The lower deck is broken up into compartments connected by a narrow gangway running along the left-hand side of the tank. The forward compartment sits forward of the command deck and consists of the driver’s and second gunner’s stations, which can also be accessed by a hatch in the hull of the tank. Here the driver views the outside world through their main auspex scope as well as numerous smaller screens and augur lenses and drives the tank, while the second gunner does likewise for the Demolisher cannon. Next is the magazine, the most heavily-armoured part of the Baneblade, where ammunition for the tank’s ballistic weapons is stored. Here the second loader feeds shells to the turret-mounted cannon through the centrally-placed shell elevator and for the Demolisher via rail sled. Towards the rear the gangway turns into a small alcove from which the tank’s tech-adept can access the powerplant, while all along its length are lockers for the crew, a trio of enclosed bunk beds and the “wall of honour” where the tank’s glorious history is recorded.The command deck is the next level of the Baneblade and is located in the upper half of the tank’s body. This deck forms an irregular octagon with armaglass viewing cupolas set into each facet, while the track units running under the extreme edges of the deck form shelves along either side. Along the front of the tank is the command suite, a high-backed chair with multiple tac-displays in front and the three-dimensional chart display behind it. The commander’s station is connected to the comms-suite running along the right-hand side of the deck, forming a continuous L-shape. The comms-suite consists of banks of monitors, logic engines and augur readouts while the comms-operator’s chair is set upon rails, allowing the tank’s second-in-command to easily move along his post. The gunnery station for the third gunner and loader is located behind and to the left of the command suite, while the tech station for the Baneblade’s Tech-adept is in the rear. Here the floor of the command deck steps up, forcing the tech-adept to slide into his seat, which nearly touches the ceiling. The command deck can be accessed by the centrally-located turret ladder well or by an emergency access hatch in the tank’s main body located above the tech station.

The super-heavy tank’s primary weapon is its turret-mounted Baneblade Cannon, a massive ten-metre-long battle cannon capable of launching rocket-assisted shells at targets many kilometers away. Such is the power of this cannon that its tremendous recoil can rock the massive tank back on its tracks and produces a deafening roar inside the tank in spite of the layers of armour and acoustic dampening material. The cannon’s double-sleeve construction allows for venting ports around its muzzle for exhaust gases to escape, preventing a dangerous build-up which could damage the weapon. The co-axial Autocannon provides additional firepower but is more often used to fire magnesium ranging rounds for the Baneblade’s main cannon. The first gunner, stationed in the gunnery deck inside the turret, controls both weapons and aims through the secondary scope located next to the primary scopes atop the turret. The first loader is also stationed inside the turret, loading each of the metre-long shells into the breach and manning any pintle-mounted weapons. A small locker within the turret contains up to half a dozen shells while an enclosed shell elevator supplies additional shots from the magazine.
The Baneblade is among the oldest armoured vehicles still in use by the Imperial Guard, based on rare Standard Template Construct technology dating back to the Dark Age of Technology. It is believed that entire divisions of Baneblades once served the Emperor of Mankind in his Great Crusade, but by the 41st Millennium an Imperial Guard regiment is considered fortunate if it has a single company of Baneblades, and many must make due with only one. The STC data necessary to create an original Baneblade, including the many advanced systems unique to its construction, is a closely-guarded secret limited to Mars — from which most true Baneblades originate – and a few other favoured Forge Worlds. Baneblades constructed on these worlds will be logged and registered with Mars, with their own identity number and name, and all information pertaining to their whereabouts and crew are regularly reported to their place of origination. As well, due to the nature of such a prime asset, the Adeptus Mechanicus shares responsibility with the Imperial Guard for selecting the crewmembers of a Baneblade.

The Baneblade is powered by a massive multi-fuel powerplant, located in the rear of the tank, which produces the enormous amount of energy necessary for the tank to function. Like powerplants found in the Leman Russ or Chimera vehicles it is capable of running on any type of fuel. When the tank is stopped the powerplant is normally left running and ready to go, however it also must undergo full maintenance and service check every six months during which it is completely shut down. The frequency of these stops increases depending on the type of fuel used or the battlefield conditions, and it is quite common to undergo one prior to a major engagement or long patrol. In cases when the powerplant is cold a battery supply allows for limited functionality of the tank’s systems: for example the heavy bolters can still be used as normal while the lascannons will be good for only a few shots.
The monopoly Mars and a select few Forge Worlds have on the Baneblade’s STC data, combined with the never-ending need for these behemoth machines, has led to the development of ‘counterfeit’ Baneblades. Officially categorized by the Adeptus Mechanicus as second-generation Baneblades, these are produced by Forge Worlds eager to secure large military contracts but who do not have the complete STC data necessary to produce a true Baneblade. Such Baneblades might use normal Battle Cannon ammunition in place of special rocket-assist rounds, or have a normal Battle Cannon in place of the Demolisher. They might also have inferior armour bracing or engine performance or less advanced comms arrays and logic engines.Many and varied are the ancient technologies which go into producing a true Baneblade, making it more advanced than most other Imperial Guard vehicles. Besides its Searchlight the tank is packed with auspex gear, such as seismic sensors, with a multitude of augur lenses ringing the tank’s outer hull. Targeting arrays and two periscopes atop the tank’s turret allow the commander a clearer view of the battlefield thanks to their prodigious height. In addition the commander can look out through any of his gunner’s scopes and designate targets for them, assisted by the tank’s logic engines in locating an enemy’s weak points. Short- and long-range vox equipment allows for communication anywhere up to orbiting satellites, while special pulse-laser comms systems allows the Baneblade to share data with other super-heavy tanks to form a logic engine network; regular vehicles retrofitted with these systems can also join in. All of the information the Baneblade receives from these many sources are combined and displayed on the three-dimensional map chart located behind the commander’s station. Here an accurate map of the tank’s surroundings as well as all friendly and enemy contacts are displayed, allowing the commander to plan out his operations.

Hey you gits! I was curious, does anyone have the dimensions for the Forge World Grot Tanks? I’m trying to scale some custom built models against some pictures online but I think I’m making them too small. Thanks

There are many ways to Tank in New World with a variety of gear, weapon and ability options. In this guide you’ll find information on some of the most effective Tank setups for completing New World content. This is a Tank Build designed for completing PvE content in the New World MMO as a Tank and can be used for completing the hardest content including Mutated level 10 expeditions. For a more Beginner friendly setup take a look at the New World Beginner Tank Build. By May 1943, a wooden mockup of the final Maus configuration was ready and presented to Hitler, who approved it for mass production, ordering a first series of 150. At this point, the estimated weight of the Maus was 188 tons.The initial plan for the Maus was for the prototype to have been completed by mid-1943, with monthly production scheduled to run at ten vehicles per month after delivery of the prototype. The work on the Maus would be divided between Krupp, responsible for the chassis, armament and turret and Alkett, who would be responsible for final assembly.

The principal problem in the design of the Maus was developing an engine and drivetrain which was powerful enough to adequately propel the tank, yet small enough to fit inside it – as it was meant to use the same sort of “hybrid drive”, using an internal-combustion engine to operate an electric generator to power its tracks with electric motor units, much as its Porsche-designed predecessors, the VK 30.01 (P), VK 45.01 (P), and Elefant had. The drive train was electrical, designed to provide a maximum speed of 20 km/h (12 mph) and a minimum speed of 1.5 km/h (0.9 mph). However, during actual field testing, the maximum speed achieved on hard surfaces was 13 km/h (8.1 mph) with full motor field, and by weakening the motor field to a minimum, a top speed of 22 km/h (14 mph) was achieved. The vehicle’s weight made it unable to use most bridges; instead it was intended to ford to a depth of 2 m (6.6 ft) or submerge up to a depth of 8 m (26 ft) and use a snorkel to cross rivers.The armor was substantial: the hull front was 220 mm (8.7 in) thick, the sides and rear of the hull were up to 190 mm (7.5 in). The turret armor was even thicker, the turret front was up to 240 mm (9.4 in) and the sides and rear 200 mm (7.9 in). The gun mantlet was 250 mm (9.8 in), and combined with the turret armor behind, the protection level at that section was even higher.

In March 1944 the second prototype, the V2, was delivered. It differed in many details from the V1 prototype. In mid-1944, the V2 prototype was fitted with a powerplant and the first produced Maus turret. This turret was fitted with a 128 mm KwK 44 L/55 gun, a coaxial 75 mm KwK 44 L/36.5 gun and a coaxial 7.92 mm MG 34. The V1 prototype was supposed to be fitted with the second produced turret, but this never happened.On 1 May a wooden model of the “Maus”, a tank project of Porsche and Krupp, was shown to Hitler. It was intended to mount a 150 mm gun. The total weight of the tank was supposed to reach 175 ton. It should be considered that after the design changes on Hitler’s instructions the tank will weigh 200 ton. The model didn’t have a single machine gun for close combat, and for this reason they had to reject it. It had the same design flaw that made the Elefant unsuitable for close combat. In the end, the tank will inevitably have to wage a close combat since it operates in cooperation with the infantry. An intense debate started, and except for me, all of the present found the “Maus” magnificent. It was promising to be exactly that, a “giant”. Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus (English: ‘mouse’) was a German World War II super-heavy tank completed in late 1944. It is the heaviest fully enclosed armored fighting vehicle ever built. Five were ordered, but only two hulls and one turret were completed, the turret being attached before the testing grounds were captured by advancing Soviet military forces. This vehicle was also built to compete with the Soviet heavy tank the Kliment Voroshilov tank. The first, turretless prototype (V1) was assembled by Alkett in December 1943. Tests started the same month, with a mockup turret fitted of the same weight as the real turret. In June 1944 the production turret, with armament, was used for tests.

What is the biggest tank to ever exist?
German Panzerkampfwagen Maus The heaviest tank ever constructed was the German Panzerkampfwagen Maus, which weighed 188 tonnes (414,469 lb).
The Maus was designed from the start to use the “electric transmission” design which Ferdinand Porsche had used in the VK 4501 (P), his unsuccessful attempt to win the production contract for the Tiger. The initial powerplant was the Daimler-Benz MB 509 gasoline engine, an adaptation of Germany’s largest displacement (at 44.5 L (2,720 cu in) inverted V12 aircraft engine, the Daimler-Benz DB 603 petrol engine, and later changed to the Daimler-Benz MB 517 diesel engine. This drove an electrical generator, and their combined length occupied the central/rear two-thirds of the Maus’ hull, cutting off the forward driver’s compartment in the hull from direct access to the turret from within the tank. Each 1.1 meter-wide track, which used the same basic “contact shoe” and “connector link” design format as the Henschel-built Tiger II, was driven by its own electric motor mounted within the upper rear area of each hull side. Each set of tracks had a suspension design containing a total of 24 road wheels per side, in six bogie sets, staggered to be spread over the entire width of the track.

After the war, the commander of Soviet armored and mechanized troops ordered the hull of V1 to be mated with the turret of V2. The Soviets used six FAMO-built Sd.Kfz. 9 18t half-tracks, the largest of Germany’s half-track vehicles built until May 1945, to pull the 55-ton turret off the destroyed hull. The resulting vehicle was then sent back to the USSR for further testing and is now at Kubinka.
The development of the Maus originates from a contract given to Porsche for the design of a 100-ton tank in March 1942. Porsche’s design, known as the VK 100.01 / Porsche Type 205, was shown to Adolf Hitler in June 1942, who subsequently approved it. Work on the design began in earnest; the first prototype, to be ready in 1943 was initially to receive the name Mammut (‘mammoth’). This was reportedly changed to Mäuschen (‘little mouse’) in December 1942 and finally to Maus (‘mouse’) in February 1943, which became the most common name for this tank.

How big are grot tanks?
They vary between the different FW models but iirc they are essentially 50mm cubes that can inconsistently vary 10mm in any direction per model.
These two prototypes underwent trials in late 1944. The complete vehicle was 10.2 m (33 ft) long, 3.71 m (12.2 ft) wide and 3.63 m (11.9 ft) high. Weighing 188 metric tons, the Maus’s main armament was the Krupp-designed 128 mm KwK 44 L/55 gun, based on the 12.8 cm Pak 44 towed anti-tank gun also used in the casemate-type Jagdtiger tank destroyer, with a coaxial 75 mm KwK 44 L/36.5 gun. The 128 mm gun was powerful enough to destroy all Allied armored fighting vehicles in service at the time, with some at ranges exceeding 3,500 m (3,800 yd). The Maus was too heavy to cross bridges. As a result, an alternative system was developed, where the Maus would instead ford the rivers it needed to cross. Due to its size it could ford relatively deep streams, but for deeper ones it was to submerge and drive across the river bottom. The solution required tanks to be paired up. One Maus would supply electrical power to the crossing vehicle via a cable until it reached the other side. The crew would receive air through a large snorkel, which was long enough for the tank to go 8 m (26 ft) under water. The Maus tank was originally designed to weigh approximately 100 tons and be armed with a 128 mm main gun and a 75 mm co-axial secondary gun. Additional armament options were studied including various versions of 128 mm, 150 mm, and 170 mm guns. In January 1943 Hitler himself insisted that the armament be a 128 mm main gun with a coaxial 75 mm gun. The 128 mm PaK 44 anti-tank field artillery piece of 1943 that Krupp adapted for arming the Maus as the Kampfwagenkanone (KwK) 44 retained, in parallel to the Porsche project, its original anti-tank Panzerabwehrkanone family designation of PaK 44 when mounted in the casemate-style Jagdtiger tank destroyer.

By July 1944, Krupp was in the process of producing four more Maus hulls, but they were ordered to halt production and scrap these. Krupp stopped all work on it in August 1944. Meanwhile, the V2 prototype started tests in September 1944, fitted with a Daimler-Benz MB 517 diesel engine, new electric steering system and a Skoda Works-designed running gear and tracks.
Due to the return “run” of the uniquely 110 cm-wide tracks used being completely enclosed within the fixed outer side armor panels that defined its overall hull width, with the inner vertical lengthwise walls of the hull used to mount the suspension components, a narrow lengthwise “tub” remained between the hull’s inner armored walls, under and to the rear of the turret to house the engine and generator of the tank’s powertrain.This lack of close combat armament was later addressed with the addition of a Nahverteidigungswaffe (short-range defensive ordnance) mounted in the turret roof, a 7.92 mm (0.31 in) MG 34 machine gun with 1,000 rounds mounted coaxially with the main weapons in the turret, and three pistol ports for submachine guns in the sides and rear of the turret. Future planned modifications included provisions for a MG 151/20 cannon for anti-aircraft defense mounted in the turret roof.

The Maus was intended to punch holes through enemy fortifications in the manner of an immense “breakthrough tank”, while taking virtually no damage to any components.

This combination of inspiring presence on the battlefield and tremendous capacity for destruction explains why the Baneblade is favoured as a command vehicle by regimental commanders and even members of the Imperial General Staff who decide to take to the field.
This totals eleven weapon barrels of various sizes and roles, giving full coverage in all arcs. The Baneblade can be further given a pintle mounted Storm Bolter or Heavy Stubber and a single-fire Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, bringing the total up to thirteen. The vehicle can also be outfitted with a Searchlight and Smoke Launchers.Every Baneblade made in the Imperium of Man is transcribed with its own unique serial number and name. In real life every Baneblade resin kit includes a unique Forge World Certification Number.But the Baneblade is not dead. Hatches clamp down to contain burning plasma or daemonic bile, and the tank’s neuro-couplings are quickly rerouted to the surviving crew members. Though scarred and scorched, the Baneblade can take an inordinate amount of damage without losing any of its destructive potential.

These include the Shadowsword Titan-killer which forgoes almost all other weapons to sport a Volcano Cannon; to the Stormlord line-breaker tank which gives up all anti-armour weaponry in favour of a Vulcan Mega Bolter, a greater number of Heavy Bolters, and the capacity to transport an entire platoon of Imperial Guardsmen.
Possessed of overwhelming and versatile firepower, exceptionally thick armour and a near-indefatigable power plant, the Baneblade has been deployed in many varied war zones throughout the galaxy. Wherever a Baneblade sees battle it quickly becomes the centre of the battle line. Guardsmen and smaller tanks shelter in its colossal shadow, even as the ranks of the enemy flee from it in abject terror.

The Baneblade possesses a powerful set of armaments. The standard Baneblade complement includes a turret-mounted Mega Battle Cannon, also known as the Baneblade Cannon, which includes a coaxial Autocannon, three sets of twin-linked Heavy Bolters (one sponson-mounted set on either side, and one turret-mounted on the front hull slope), two turret-mounted Lascannons on either side, mounted directly above the side sponsons, and lastly, a fixed-forward hull-mounted Demolisher Cannon.
However, the vast majority of Baneblades available in the Imperium were created in the forges of Mars. Every Baneblade made in the Imperium is transcribed with its own unique serial number and name and all the records of each vehicle’s service and accomplishments in combat are reverently recorded on the Forge World of that vehicle’s construction.To the untrained eye the differences between the vehicles appeared superficial, but the Tech-priests of Mars preached otherwise, furthering that many schisms that had developed between the various Forge Worlds throughout the final decades of the Great Crusade.

The interior of a Baneblade has more in common with a fortified command bunker than it does with the insides of other, smaller armoured vehicles. Its weapons interfaces, operations points and data relays sprawl across several intermeshed layers of decks, which are connected by a warren of corridors and companionways.
The clangour inside a fully active Baneblade rivals that of all but the most apocalyptic of conflicts. Thunderous blasts reverberate throughout the hull every time the primary weapon is fired. A high-pitched clatter fills the stifling air as an unending cascade of spent shell casings rains down through grills into collection receptacles. Even the scratching of quill on parchment is deafening as reams of cogitative data are hastily recorded by batteries of auto-scribes.Regardless of its provenance, the Baneblade was a stately iron beast, its iconic turret-mounted Baneblade Cannon the bane of countless foes over the years. Its armour was nigh impenetrable and many of those in the service of the elite Solar Auxilia had been upgraded to the “Solar” sub-pattern and fitted with extensive exploration and survival equipment to allow operation in the most hostile of environments.Before this ancient spirit can be awakened, each control panel and catechetical dial must be daubed with sanctified oils. When the engines do roar to fiery life, these oils quickly vaporise into an acrid fume. Many crews believe this represents the tank sharing its breath with those it has deemed worthy.

Bristling with armaments, a Baneblade is less of a tank and more of a rolling fortress. An unmistakable icon of the Imperium’s armoured supremacy, a single one of these super-heavy war engines can serve as the mailed fist of an Astra Militarum offensive, or as the unassailable lynchpin of even the most desperate of defences.
The Baneblade ranks amongst the most recognisable super-heavy tank of the Great Crusade, produced in the tens of thousands for service with the Excertus Imperialis all across the ever-expanding Imperium.The metallic crunch echoes up through the base plates, as does the splintering of bones from any warriors unlucky enough to be caught in the beast’s path. So constant is this deafening sound that many Baneblade crew members begin to lose their sanity when exposed to the relative silence outside of their mechanical cocoon for too long.

Baneblades are so rare in the present Imperial armed forces that some companies upgrade a Leman Russ tank, adding sponson-mounted Lascannons if they are short on Baneblades. The Baneblade is also in extremely high demand amongst Imperial Guard armoured regiments, meaning that most such regiments will only possess 5-10.These profane war machines and apex monstrosities can deliver enough force to breach a Baneblade’s hull. When they do, destructive shock waves are sent rippling throughout the interior chambers. The pressure surge is enough to pulverise those inside, caving in the skulls of those closest to the impact and liquefying their organs.There are several variants of the Baneblade officially recognised by the Adeptus Mechanicus that are in current use with the Astra Militarum. The Standard Template Construct chassis of the Baneblade is highly adaptable, and the Tech-priests have capitalised on this, furnishing the Astra Militarum with the tools of war it required without having to have the Imperial Guard field their own much harder to produce and maintain Titan Legions. These vehicles are mostly the result of an Imperial commander discovering an unmet tactical need that can only be accomplished by a super-heavy tank like the Baneblade. These variants are created by changing out the tank’s standard weapons with those not usually found on a Baneblade. Known variants of the Baneblade include the following super-heavy tanks:Such Command Baneblades are specially equipped with powerful Vox arrays and tactical planning equipment, allowing the officer in charge to keep control of his troops while he participates in the fighting.

The sight of a mighty Baneblade rumbling forward is a major boost for any supporting Imperial infantry’s morale, and when correctly supported, the Baneblade excels at decimating anything smaller than itself with its large array of guns while crushing the remains of its enemies under its massive tracks.The Baneblade and its variants are amongst the oldest patterns of tanks still being used by the Imperium of Man in the 41st Millennium. It is rumoured that in the past there were entire divisions of Baneblades in service to the Emperor of Mankind but that number is severely diminished at present, like most of the more advanced technologies available to the Imperium.

What weapons does the Grot Mega tank have?
A Grot Mega-tank is equipped with: 3 big shootas; 2 twin big shootas; 1 shoota. Each time an attack is made with this weapon, that attack automatically hits the target. Each time an attack is made with this weapon, that attack automatically hits the target. Cached
For all its might, however, the Baneblade is not perfect: it is slow, lacks maneuverability and is a very large target. Baneblades are also not as effective when facing dedicated anti-armour vehicles due to the relative short range of their weapons.

What is the biggest imperial tank?
The Baneblade is the primary super-heavy tank used by the Imperial Guard and is one of the largest and oldest tanks used by the Imperium. These massive machines often serve as the command vehicles for entire regiments or spearhead armoured attacks, organized into their own super-heavy companies.
The hull of a Baneblade is composed of the most durable steel alloys known to the Tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Even so, it is not completely impervious to damage. Baneblades are sent into battle against the most terrifying abominations in the galaxy — gargantuan machines of eldritch design, towering xenos creatures and heinous daemons spewed forth from the Warp.The Baneblade is the primary super-heavy tank of the Astra Militarum, and one of the largest and oldest armoured fighting vehicles in the service of the Imperial armed forces. The tank is a venerated Standard Template Construct (STC) design, with ten people needed to fully crew one. It is also one of the oldest STC designs in existence. They are often used as command vehicles by Imperial Guard commanders.

A single tank hunter like a Leman Russ Vanquisher can easily damage or even destroy a Baneblade long before it comes into range of the smaller tank. This is why the very adaptable chassis of the Baneblade has been used over the millennia to create more dedicated versions.
This is to say nothing of the mighty engine itself, the living heart of the Baneblade that thrums with fury as the mechanical beast drives into battle. Those crew manning the lower decks may hear the sound of lesser vehicles breaking beneath the Baneblade’s adamantium tracks.The majority of Baneblades were produced on Mars, and the Lords of the Red Planet hold the Mars class vehicle as the inalienable iteration of the Machine God’s vision and it galled them greatly that certain other Forge Worlds produced their own patterns.Yet despite its enormous bulk there is precious little space for the numerous crew. Every surface is encrusted with sancti-wired Servo-skulls, draped with Purity Seals or pocked with munitions sconces, all of which are devoted to the steering of the Baneblade’s raging Machine Spirit.

The Lucius Pattern Baneblade has a more heavily fortified chassis and larger amounts of armour plate and makes use of a more powerful engine to remain mobile with this added weight.The standard configuration Baneblade is a powerful main battle tank with no particular strength or weakness. It is best deployed in the role of heavy infantry support, where it can engage both infantry waves with its Heavy Bolters and Demolisher Cannon, while at the same time punish enemy armour with its Mega Battle Cannon and Lascannons.
