Centaur Carrier

Easily one of the smallest vehicles employed by the Imperial Guard, the Centaur Carrier is an exceptionally versatile vehicle that uses speed and a uniquely modular design to fulfil a number of roles. Centaurs act as command crew transports, supply transports and communication vehicles, but they most often find use as towing vehicles for field artillery as well as transporting the gun crews that operate these weapons. The Centaur itself has few weapons, often just a single pintle mount, but its hull incorporates a modular weapon mount adapted for numerous weapon types. This makes it an ideal transport for small units of well-equipped infantry, such as Storm Troopers or Grenadiers. Not considered fighting vehicles, Centaur crews tend to fall back from concentrated pockets of enemy resistance using their high speed to get away quickly.

Special Rules
The Centaur Carrier’s modular weapon mount is large enough to accept a single heavy stubber, heavy flamers or grenade launcher, assuming the transported passengers have such a weapon. The weapon must be fired by the passengers. Weapons mounted in this manner count as being Fixed weapons with a Forward Facing, and are automatically considered Braced. Centaurs may tow field artillery pieces up to Massive in size, although this halves their Tactical and Cruising Speed and reduces their Manoeuvrability to –10. Limbering and unlimbering a piece of field artillery takes 1 minute (12 Full Actions) and the Centaur must remain stationary whilst this process is completed.
