The Razorback is an armored personnel carrier (APC) primarily used by the Orders of the Adeptus Astartes, and also by other Imperial adepts such as the Inquisition and the Adeptus Arbites.
The Razorback is a variant of the Rhino chassis that sacrifices some of the Rhino's basic troop transport capacity in order to add a top-mounted weapon system.
The Razorback's top-mounted weapon is remotely controlled from inside the vehicle and can be equipped with several different weapon types, such as: B. a two-barreled heavy bolter or a two-barreled laser cannon.
Unlike the base Rhino, which is either unarmed or armed only with a trunnion-mounted storm bolter, the Razorback's weapon system allows the vehicle to remain after deploying its troop load and act as heavy fire support. Due to the wide range of weapons that the Razorback's remote control system can be equipped with, it can be used against targets ranging from light infantry to heavy armor.
The Razorback can be equipped with many different weapons, and being so new to the Empire's arsenal, it lacks the revered status of the Predator and Rhino, whose use dates back to the Great Crusade. This means there is less taboo when it comes to reinterpreting the vehicle's design, and many Chapters take advantage of this by adding unauthorized weapons and upgrades.
The Razorback holds the title for the Space Marine vehicle with the widest range of weaponry, and there are several weapon loadouts that were used by a single Space Marine Chapter and then spread to many more. The Razorback's most commonly used weapons are twin-linked heavy bolters, used for infantry suppression, or twin-linked lascannons, used for anti-tank combat. The Razorback can also be equipped with twin-linked heavy flamethrowers, twin-linked multi-meltas, or a single multi-melter.
The Blood Angels Chapter of Space Marines uses several variants unique to their Chapter, such as: B. dual linked assault cannons and a flaming assault cannon. The Blood Angels even have a special Rhino chassis pattern known as the "Lucifer Pattern" that replaces the vehicle's engines with overpowered ones, allowing it to move faster in battle.
The Gray Knights and the Ordo Malleus of the Inquisition use a special variant equipped with double-linked psycannons to fight demons and psykers. The oldest Razorback pattern, the Mark 1 "Stronos" variant, named for the de facto Chapter Master of the Iron Hands Chapter, the Iron Father Kardan Stronos, featured dual linked plasma cannons and a single laser cannon.
As well as a choice of weapons for the Razorback's main turret - either a dual heavy bolter or dual laser cannon - this kit comes with a wealth of optional extras including a spiked ram, ammo box, fuel canisters, cable, smoke launcher, communications relay, Hunter Killer Missile and tow hook. It also features a fully detailed interior with a communications system and boltgun on a weapon rack, and an optional Space Marines driver/gunner.
This 76-part plastic kit makes one Razorback or one Rhino. It comes with an Ultramarines Vehicle Transfer Sheet.
