An Ultramarines Whirlwind firing it Whirlwind Multiple Missile Launcher at an enemy during the Joran IV Campaign

The Whirlwind Multiple Missile Launcher is the dorsal-mounted primary weapons system of the Adeptus Astartes' Whirlwind artillery tank. Housing cadaverous telemetric-Servitors, the Whirlwind Multiple Missile Launcher is a superlative fire suppression weapon. Inscribed with scrolling text invoking the Emperor's judgement, the Whirlwind Launcher's warheads are death to infantry and light vehicles alike.

A Whirlwind Multiple Missile Launcher, like an Earthshaker Cannon, possesses a short minimum range that it is unable to fire within. However, this is offset by the long range of its missiles and their wide blast radius. A Whirlwind Multiple Missile Launcher will normally be armed with two different types of missiles to fire in their artillery salvos, and are able to switch between these two types during the course of battle. Vengeance Missiles are geared towards destroying light vehicles and medium-armoured infantry, whilst Incendiary Castellan missiles are able to flush enemies out of cover with thier fiery blasts.
