Griffon Heavy Mortar

The Griffon is a light artillery tank of the Imperial Guard that is equipped with a Heavy Mortar Cannon and is based on the Chimera chassis. The tank is the lightest of the Imperial Guard’s artillery and siege tanks, and is smaller in both size and firepower than the Basilisk, Medusa, and Bombard tanks. The Griffon is used as an indirect-fire support vehicle for infantry during offensive sieges and is also used to fire over walls and other barriers. The main weapon of the Griffon is not capable of long-range fire like the Basilisk, or powerful enough to destroy heavy vehicles and structures. The Griffon has been in Imperial service since the time of the Great Crusade, when it was known to the Imperial Army as the “Helios Mortar Carrier.”
