Leman Russ Executioner

The Leman Russ Executioner has all but disappeared from the battlefields of the 41st Millennium. Rarer than even the Leman Russ Vanquisher, the Executioner features a primary weapon that virtually no Forge World can replicate: the plasma destroyer. Volatile, unreliable and devastatingly powerful, this relic of the Age of Technology disgorges gouts of incandescent death that no personal armour can withstand. The plasma destroyer’s fusillade makes the Executioner one of the most dangerous tanks available to the Imperial Guard.
However this power comes at a price, and the Executioner has a number of serious drawbacks. Such ancient tech-secrets require dedicated Enginseer support. Prone to massive overheating, the plasma destroyer’s troubles only get worse if errant small arms fire or explosive shrapnel cut the external coolant lines. Overtaxed main guns have led to catastrophic detonations, meaning only the most skilled tank crews ever pilot these formidable, if unpredictable, tanks to their full potential.
