The Leman Russ is the core battle tank of the Imperial Guard and the mainstay of its armoured fighting force. It forms the spearhead of any Imperial Guard armoured attack. Armed with might battle cannons and heavy weapons, these lumbering brutes grind forward unleashing an indefatigable onslought of firepower. Those enemies that do not fall to the cannonade are crushed beneath their heavy treads.
Most of the Leman Russ Battle Tanks fighting as part of an infantry company are detached from an 'Emperor's Fist' or 'Emperor's Lance' armoured regiment. It is rare indeed for an Imperial Guard force to engage the enemy without at oneastv one of these fearsome machines in support.
