An Enhanced Data-Tether is an arcane device utilised by the warriors of the Adeptus Mechanicus' Skitarii Legions to communicate with their Tech-priest masters. Those honoured with carrying an Enhanced Data-Tether are obeyed without hesitation by their reverent Skitarii comrades; they are seen as the mouthpieces of the Tech-priests, who in turn are prophets of the Machine God Himself.
When a unit of Skitarii with an Enhanced Data-Tether receives an order from above, they are filled with such religious conviction that not even the foulest of horrors can drive them back.
Broad Spectrum Data-Tether
A vehicle-mounted version of the Enhanced Data-Tethers carried by veteran Skitarii, a Broad Spectrum Data-Tether projects a Tech-priest's binaric blurts with such clarity that it seems as if he is amongst the ranks of the Skitarii himself. Imperatives delivered via Broad Spectrum Data-Tethers are more potent and reliable than any other.
