"We strike from the darkness, but we are not of the night. Though born in darkness, we seek only the light."

A Dark Fury Assault Squad of the Raven Guard Legion

A Dark Fury Assault Squad was a specialised Legion Assault Squad utilised exclusively by the Raven Guard Legion during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras during the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. Equipped with the finest wargear, they would launch silent aerial assaults against unsuspecting high-value targets in a vicious decapitation strike.

History

The Dark Fury Assault Squads were utilised by the Raven Guard Legion to conduct focused decapitation strikes upon specific, pre-designated enemy leaders against the backdrop of the carnage of battle. Far from subtle assassins striking unseen from the shadows, the Dark Fury ascended into the very midst of the battlefield, equipped with vicious Lightning Claws fashioned after those carried by their Primarch Corvus Corax. These squads were often deployed from the holds of specialised transport vessels such as the Darkwing Pattern Storm Eagle Gunships or the open frame Whispercutters, leaping from great heights to descend upon the silenced retro thrusters of their Jump Packs directly onto the heads of their unsuspecting target. Their squad leaders, known as the Choosers of the Slain for good reason, engaged the target while the warriors cut down any retainers who dared attempt to intervene. The result of a successful decapitation strike was utter confusion in the ranks of the foe, and the complete breakdown of the enemy's chain of command.
