Leman Russ Battle Tank

The Leman Russ is the workhorse of the Imperial Guard’s armoured companies. Deployed to virtually every warzone across the galaxy for thousands of years, there is no other type of tank that sees more combat than the Leman Russ. A robust and rugged design, the Leman Russ actually benefits from its unsophisticated construction techniques that allow it to traverse all sorts of terrain types and ensure that it can operate in almost any local conditions. Its heavy armour, mostly concentrated towards the front, provides a level of protection that outweighs all but the greatest tanks of the Adeptus Astartes, and its weapon configuration allows it to take on a varied range of targets.
The Leman Russ is slow and bulky, yet adaptable, forming the basis for several variants such as the Executioner and the Annihilator. It is one of the most recognisable silhouettes on the battlefield and the sound the Leman Russ’ battle cannon makes as it fires high explosive rounds towards the enemies of the Imperium can be as inspirational as a Ministorum Priest’s battle hymn or the shouts of a Commissar.
