The Cerberus is a special version of the Spartan design that uses its huge body to carry a prototype neutron laser emitter, as well as the large arc-generators and radiation protection needed to run the weapon. The neutron laser is not well understood by the experts of the Mechanicum, but ranks among the most efficient anti-tank weapons available to the Space Marine Legions, able to blast through the toughest armour and disable its target’s systems with bursts of radiation. The dreadful price the Cerberus exacts on its crew is seen by many commanders as a necessary sacrifice, for this formidable tank can challenge even Titan-class foes.
The kit also includes components to upgrade the Cerberus with a pintle-mounted weapon – a havoc launcher, heavy bolter, heavy flamer, multi-melta, or a combi-weapon with five configurations (bolter, flamer, melta, plasma, or volkite) – as well as a searchlight, a hunter-killer missile, and cosmetic options such as towing hooks, icons for Loyalists and Traitors, and a choice of a Space Marine gunner, spotter, or closed hatch.
This kit comprises 221 plastic components, and is supplied with a Legiones Astartes Vehicle Transfer Sheet containing 44 optional markings and icons for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists Legions. This miniature is supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
