Siegfried

The Siegfried tank is built on the modified chassis of an armed and armoured Land Crawler utility vehicle

The Siegfried is a modified variant of the Land Crawler utility vehicle commonly found by the billions all over the Imperium. The Siegfried is lightly armed and thus is mostly used as a scout and reconnaissance vehicle by the forces of the Imperial Guard. The Siegfried was first developed out of necessity on the planet Krieg during the 500-year-long civil war that consumed that world and was intended to replace the Sentinel walker that was deemed unsuitable for the rugged battlefields of Krieg. Although the Siegfried is no longer used by the regiments of the Imperial Guard's Death Korps of Krieg, who prefer to use the more versatile Sentinel, the Siegfried is still used by large numbers of other Imperial Guard siege regiments. The Siegfried replaces the regular catalytic engine of the Land Crawler with a more powerful gas turbine engine so that the improved power-to-weight ratio provides the Siegfried with nearly double the top speed of the Land Crawler. While the Siegfried is heavily armoured, it is usually kept in reserve and is rarely deployed to the front, although many Imperial Guard siege regiments use them to quickly exploit breaches in the enemy's defences when an opportunity reveals itself. Like the Sentinel that the Siegfried was meant to replace, its main weapon is a Multilaser.

Adeptus Mechanicus Technical SpecificationsEdit

The Adeptus Mechanicus has not released official technical specifications for what is essentially an unconventional modification of a non-military vehicle.
