Like the Predator is to a Rhino, the design of the Gladiator is based upon that of an Impulsor’s chassis, and has been designed to serve as a front line battle tank rather than a transport vehicle. If you’re looking to shore up your batteline while offering some formidable fire support, a Gladiator will fit the role perfectly!
The Valiant lays down blistering volleys of fire as its escorts transports or supports infantry in ferocious fighting, crossing rushing watercourses, sucking marshlands and bubbling lava with equal ease. Its twin las-talons spit death at the foe, making short work of enemy armour and cracking open fortified positions. The Valiant-pattern Gladiator specialises in the close-range destruction of enemy vehicles with its turret-mounted twin las-talon and multi-melta sponsons, so is best suited to supporting more aggressive tactics.
When the cannons of the Gladiator Reaper spin to full pitch, the droning makes the teeth of all nearby itch with the intensity of vibrations. Within seconds, thousands of spent casing pour over the battle tank’s armoured hide as enemies are erased from existence by the storm of fire. With its twin heavy onslaught gatling cannon and two tempest bolters, the Reaper-pattern Gladiator is the final say in infantry-shredding firepower, making it the perfect choice for facing down enemy hordes.
With pinpoint accuracy, the Gladiator Lancer picks off the heaviest enemy armour, the laser destroyer punching smouldering holes in their hulls. Such is the range of its heavy cannon that it can eliminate threats to the Space Marines before they encounter them, storming past burning wrecks to claim their objectives. The Lancer-pattern Gladiator is armed with a turret-mounted laser destroyer, making it the perfect choice for obliterating monsters, tanks or other high-value targets from extreme range.
