The Land Raider Terminus Ultra is a rare configuration of the standard Land Raider that makes use of the vehicle's inherent modularity. It primarily used as an assault transport and main battle tank. Being compatible with a range of weapon configuarionts, the vehicle mounts additional sponson Lascannon in place of its side assault hatches, and a turret-mounted twin Lascannon in place of the usual Heavy Bolters. These weapons require an inordinate amount of power, the additional reactor systems required displacing the entirety of the Land Raider's troop carrying capacity. Unfortunately, even with the entire troop compartment given over to power generation and regulation, the Terminus Ultra can still take irreversible damage from massive and uncontrollable power surges caused by the firing of its weapons. All of these weapon combine to make the Terminus Ultra one of the most potent armour-killers in the arsenal of the Space Marines, but the configuration stretches of the Land Raider's capabilities to such a degree that the pattern remains rare and is only ever fielded in the direst of circumstances to counter enemy super-heavy vehicles or Titan-class war machines.
The Land Raider Terminus Ultra is used by the Adeptus Astartes as a powerful anti-armour vehicle, and it is armed with the standard sponson-mounted Twin-linked Godhammer Pattern Lascannons used on the standard Phobos Pattern Land Raider. The standard hull-mounted Twin-linked Heavy Bolters are replaced with Twin-linked Lascannons, and an additional two Lascannons are mounted in front of the sponson Lascannons. The Terminus Ultra, with its total of eight Lascannons, can fire a single salvo that is capable of crippling super-heavy tanks such as the Baneblade, disabling Chaos Titans, and even out-right destroying Ork Gargants. Like all Land Raiders, the Terminus Ultra is equipped with a powerful Machine Spirit that is capable of taking over in case the vehicle's Astartes crew is killed or incapacitated. The Land Raider Terminus Ultra can also be outfitted with a dozer blade, a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, a Pintle-mounted Storm Bolter or a Pintle-mounted Multi-Melta, a searchlight, and smoke launchers.
