The Leman Russ Vanquisher is a more sophisticated version of the basic Leman Russ battle tank armed with the Vanquisher Battle Cannon. The special anti-tank ammunition used in this fearsome weapon is very useful against a foe with many armoured vehicles but of less use when facing a foe with smaller vehicles and hordes of infantry.

The Stygies VIII variant of the Vanquisher cannon, while lacking the immense length of the Gryphonne IV guns to generate shell velocity, utilises a slightly smaller calibre shell with increased barrel rifling.
