A variant of the Triaros Armoured Conveyor common within the Mechanicum Taghmata, the Karacnos is a dedicated assault tank, its armoured chassis and copious transport compartment devoted to the mounting and munitions store of a single heavy weapon system – a mortar battery of ‘Karacnos’ radiological warheads, designed to sweep an area clear of organic life for later acquisition by the forces of the Machine God. These warheads are rather volatile, meaning this tank is heavily protected by armoured shutters which provide two modelling options: the tank can have these open or closed. As well as this, its rear-mounted self-targeting lightning-blasters are movable from a resting position to battle-ready, meaning this machine can go from mobile artillery platform to true assault tank with a single command – especially given the front-mounted shock ram it shares with its ancestor. Rules for using a Karacnos Assault Tank as part of a Mechanicum army in Horus Heresy games can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno. The Karacnos Assault Tank is a complete, multi-part resin kit in 50 components.
