Tau Empire Symbol

The icon of the T'au Empire.

A Fusion Torch is a T'au utility tool issued to XV46 Vanguard Void Battlesuits to aid them in exploring the hazardous interior environments of Space Hulks.

A Fusion Torch is a short-ranged and very high-powered Melta cutting tool, utilising a nuclear fusion reaction to generate an immensely hot beam capable of cutting through even the thickest of bulkheads and barriers.

Whilst designed to breach obstacles, a Fusion Torch can also be used as an incredibly potent, if clumsy, close combat weapon capable of vaporising anything that its wielder happens to target within reach of its beam.
