The Hellhammer is a super-heavy tank of the Imperial Guard that is a variant of the infamous Baneblade tank. The Hellhammer replaces the Mega Battle Cannon of the Baneblade with a Hellhammer Cannon. The Hellhammer Cannon is a variation of the Battle Cannon commonly found on the Leman Russ main battle tank. It has a shorter barrel with special heavy-gauge suppressors built into it that allows it to fire extremely high-calibre shells without ripping itself apart. These shells are designed to destroy armour and emplacements with an unstable sub-atomic charge.
The Hellhammer is named after its main weapon, the Hellhammer Cannon, but it is also armed with a co-axial Autocannon, a hull-mounted Demolisher Cannon, a Twin-linked hull-mounted Heavy Bolter, two top-mounted sponson Lascannons, and two sponson-mounted Twin-linked Heavy Flamers. The Hellhammer can can also be equipped with a pintle mounted Heavy Stubber or Storm Bolter and a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher.
