The Xiphon Rotary Missile Launcher is the main weapon system of the Xiphon Pattern Interceptor that was used by the Space Marine Legions during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras of the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. This deadly weapons system is a more compact design of those more commonly found on heavy void fighters. The weapon incorporates sophisticated munitions with their own cluster-charged warheads and internal tracking auguries, mounted on a rapid-firing rotary magazine-fed launcher system. These weapons systems are incredibly efficient in their principal task of destroying enemy fighter craft, but are also flexible enough to be readily turned on armoured ground targets as well.
