Aeronautica Imperialis: Marauder Colossus
Die Imperiale Flotte entsendet in die Luftschlachten der fernen Zukunft bald Unterstützung in Form des Marauder Colossus, mit einer besonders schweren Bombe zum knacken von feindlichen Bodenzielen.
Flight Plan: Introducing the Biggest Bomb in the Imperial Navy
Here at Flight Plan Headquarters, we like things that make a big bang. Shocking, we know. Luckily for us, the Imperial Navy – never ones to be outdone by their Orky opponents – has seen fit to deploy its largest bomb yet. It even comes with a whole plane attached!
Conceived by the assuredly sane and stable Tech-Priests of Cypra Mundi, the Marauder Colossus deftly answers the question of “What if we stripped everything possible out of the Marauder and replaced it with a 10,000kg drum of high explosives topped with a melta warhead and diamantine tip?.” Designed to crack the toughest targets above and below ground, this new addition to the Imperial Navy’s arsenal is sure to find a starring role in your next ground attack mission.
As you can see, it’s the same dependable Marauder chassis we know and love, with a new slimmed-down weapon loadout to make space for the breathtaking Colossus Bomb. For just a 3 point upgrade, you get access to Extra Damage on an unprecedented 3+, making more than half of your hits deal a hefty 2 damage. If that won’t dig those blasted cowards out of their shelters, nothing will.
Of course, the Colossus Bomb isn’t the only weapon the plane has – it wouldn’t be a Marauder without wings packed full of ordnance! Whether it’s tackling pesky fighters or making sure everything on the ground is extra, extra dead, you’ve got the options to see the Emperor’s work done, Imperial Navy-style.
With all of this awesome air power you might be forgiven for forgetting it’s still a bomber, so don’t neglect your air cover! Keep those pesky xenos off your tail with a squadron of Lightnings so the mighty Colossus can do its work, give it some ground-attack friends in the shape of the Avenger, or form up with a wing of Thunderbolts for a true display of the Imperial Navy’s fighting power. Whichever you choose, your pilots will surely be thankful for the big hitter flying closely behind them.
That’s all for this month’s Flight Plan – join us again next month for another look into the future of Aeronautica Imperialis. Until then, as ever, watch your six!
