Mastodon Super Heavy Assault Transport

The Mastodon is one of the heaviest assault transports in the arsenal of the Legiones Astartes, seeing much action the Great Crusade, and into the years of the great heresy. Its cavernous assault bay, capable of housing almost half a Company, is protected both by thick layers of ceramite armour as well as crackling void shields. It also mounts a fearsome siege melta array, allowing it to breach even the most formidable defences with ease, as well as an array of secondary weaponry intended to defend the vehicle as it approaches its target. Unleashed by the Legiones against only the most fearsome of enemy redoubts, there are few obstacles that can halt the advance of the Mastodon.

Heavily armed and armoured, the Mastodon typically carries 40 power armoured marines, half that number of terminators and even Dreadnoughts dependent on the mission perimeters. Whilst embarked, the warriors within will defend their immense transport, turning the sponson weapons on any enemy brave or foolish enough to come close. It’s Siege melta array can easily destroy fortifications, and makes short work of armoured vehicles, whilst its Skyreaper Battery will tear through any airborne threat with ease. It is for this reason that the Jarls of the Vlka Fenryka favour this mighty instrument of war, delivering the All-Father’s executioners into the heart of the enemy.

Until Next Winter…
