Kataphron Demiplate is the form of armour normally deployed on the Adeptus Mechanicus' Kataphron Destroyer Battle Servitors. The weapon systems of the Kataphron Destroyer generate so much heat that their cabling is necessarily exposed -- to armour their wielder in heavier Breacherplate would doom it to swift burnout. Nonetheless, its cyborg anatomy and heavy steel treads provide a great deal of protection against small arms fire.
