I love the retardation which is Warhammer lore: they have to rediscover "stick a big gun on the top"... Awesome model though!

and i know.. i was thinking of this myself a few days ago, its been 40,000 years they have space marines and massive titans yet they can't even figure out how to make new vehicles and weapons without an STC?

Description

The Razorback is a tracked, armoured vehicle used by Space Marine Chapters. Its design is based on the Rhino chassis and as such is quite easy to manufacture, sharing many of its design features. It is sometimes favoured over the Rhino because of its superior firepower, although this comes at the cost of transport space. Because the rediscovery of the design occurred after the Horus Heresy, the Traitor Legions do not field Razorbacks. A variant of the Predator Battle Tank designed to carry troops is believed to be the first precursor to the modern Razorback. However, the STC template for the Razorback was first rediscovered in M36 by Chief Artisan Tilvius while he was exploring the Southern Rim of the galaxy. When he returned to Mars, the Adeptus Mechanicus recognized it from earlier records and commenced work on its production. Within two hundred years the first Razorbacks were field-tested and began seeing service to the Adeptus Astartes soon after.
