The Leman Russ Demolisher is a variant of the Astra Militarum’s primary main battle tank, the Leman Russ. The Leman Russ is named after the Primarch of the Space Wolves Space Marines Chapter, Leman Russ, and is one of the most common armoured vehicles used by the Imperium of Man. The Leman Russ Demolisher variant differs from the standard pattern Leman Russ in that its main weapon is a Demolisher Cannon, as opposed to the standard Battle Cannon. The Demolisher Cannon sacrifices range for additional firepower, and is capable of inflicting unusually heavy damage on a target, or outright destroying enemy fortifications. As a result, the Leman Russ Demolisher is often used as a close-support tank for breaking enemy lines and sieges.
