Renatian Consortium: Vehicles {Ground, Air, and Space}

Renatian Vehicles: Ground

Shade Class Land Speeder
The Shade is a single seater jetbike, armoured with plasteel and cerimite plates, and housing a twin-linked Arnax Plasma Gun under the nose. These Speeders are deployed to strike at enemy ground vehicles by forming 'Wolf Packs' of up to six, striking the target simultaneously, then dispersing before an effective counter-attack can be executed.

Heilos Class Light Tank
The Helios is a grav-tank of similar size to the iconic Space Marine Predator, though shaped like an elongated hexagon. The Helios is crewed by a single driver and a gunner operating the turret, upon which is mounted a Crux Ultima pattern Lascannon. Furthermore, an Assault Howitzer is mounted along the bottom of the hull for increased offensive capability against infantry.

Lycaeon Pattern Battle Tank
Serving as Renatia's main service tank, the Lycaeon has been the military standard for centuries, with no alternative developments proving to beat the classic design. Crewed by a team of four, the Lycaeon rumbles across the battlefield on a mighty set of thick treads, providing an unstoppable mount for an array of potent weaponry, such as Melta-Cannons, Railguns and Rotary Cannons - all of which are turret mounted. Smaller weapons act as sponsons on either side, as well as a hull mounted weapon beside the driver. These often come in the form of Multi-Lasers and Lascannons. Between deployments, a Lycaeon's loadout can be easily modified to suit the necessary environment, reducing the need for specialist vehicles.

Geryon GDS Super-Heavy Tank - This 38 metre long adamantine clad juggernaut is held aloft by a set of 8 powerful legs, resulting in many referring to it by the nickname 'Giant Death Spider' - this has since been included within the technical specifications due to the term's widespread use. The GDS is armed primarily with the apocalyptic Ascalon Mk.VI Sunburst Cannon, capable of acting as a devastating turret weapon as well as long-range artillery. Further defenses include a twin Crux Ultima Lascannon turret for anti-air defense, 2 pairs of Multi-Laser sponson guns, and frag mines placed within the shins to wipe out melee fighters.

Oroborus Class APC
Roughly twice the length of an Astartes Rhino, and just as wide, the Oroborus is the Renatian standard APC. Powerful anti-grav generators keep the Oroborus hovering, maintaining a slow but steady pace across deadly battlefields, before dropping the forward assault ramp to deliver a cargo of up to 20 Renatian soldiers. An Autocannon ball-turret is positioned either side of the cockpit to provide overwatch, requiring the vehicle to maintain a crew of three.

Renatian Vehicles (Air)

Ignus Class Omnicraft
With VTOL capabilities, 110 millimetre armour plates and a wide aray of armament options, the Ignus Omnifighter serves as the main atmospheric aircraft for the Consortium Air Corps. Instead of using different designs of aircraft, the Air Corps refit and rearm the Ignus for three different battlefield roles, these being Fighter, Bomber, and Interceptor. This is done by changing the weapons fitted on the nose, under the wings, and upon a top-facing turret behind the cockpit. Regardless of their role, all Omnicraft of this class weigh in at 20 tonnes, sport a wingspan of 19.3 metres and measure 17.5 metres from nose to tail. Furthermore, they have an operational ceiling of 40 kilometres, a maximum speed of 2,230 kilometres per hour, and is crewed by two pilots and a turret gunner, making this vehicle a fearsome counterpart to the classic Imperial Navy Thunderbolt.

Ignus-F
Nose Mount: A Rotary Lasgun in the centre, with a two Crux Ultima Lascannons on either side.
Wing Mount: Three Air-Surface Missiles on each wing.
Turret Mount: A Rotary Lasgun.

Ignus-B
Nose Mount: An Assault Howitzer in the centre, with a Crux Ultima Lascannon on either side.
Wing Mount: 6 bomb mounts on each wing, which can be equipped with a variety of different charges.
Turret Mount: An Assault Howitzer.

Ignus-I
Nose Mount: Two Rotary Lasguns side by side, with a third at the top to form a triangle. A Crux Ultima Lascannon is mounted either side of the third Rotary Lasgun.
Wing Mount: 3 Air-Air Missiles on each wing.
Turret Mount: A Rotary Lasgun.

Omnicyrus Class Gunship
This vehicle is a void-capable VTOL transport of a similar structure and design to the ubiquitous Imperial Navy Valkyrie Gunship - however, the Omnicyrus is physically much larger, and the added weight and armour makes it's dogfighting ability pale in comparison. The interior is fitted to hold up to 20 individual troops, or up to 6 Shades, then drop them into the heat of battle via an exit ramp at the back, and a sliding door on either side. Weapons include an air-surface Frag Missile pod under each wing, and a nose mounted gun - this is typically a Rotary Lasgun, although an Assault Howitzer, Crux Ultima Lascannon or Arnax Plasma Cannon are all options.

Xion Class Transport
A larger version of the Omnicyrus, the Xion sacrifices a troop bay for a section of large, powerful magnets, giving the Xion the ability to transport armoured vehicles. Three Helios Light Tanks, two Oroborous APCs, or a single Lycaeon Battle Tank can be held at any one time. It's worth noting that each APC can hold 20 men, meaning that the Xion can technically act as a troop transport for 40 men at a single time - however, it's usually recommended that legionaries avoid this form of deployment, as descending to the surface within an Oroborous is known to lead to intense nausea, irritable bowels, and a loss in the will to live. The Xion does not perform combat drops, and is instead used to deploy armour away from the front lines. As a result, the Xion is equipped with the same nose weapons as an Omnicyrus.
