Three of five Kharybdis Storm Launchers on a Night Lords Legion Kharybdis Assault Claw

The Kharybdis Storm Launcher is a rapid-firing missile launcher system that was used on Kharybdis Assault Claws once used by the Space Marine Legions during the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy eras of the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. This weapon system was designed to provide the Kharybdis with some measure of ranged striking power as it closes with its target and to clear landing zones around the Kharybdis once it lands.

The weapon worked by throwing nearby enemy resistance into total disarray by firing clusters of fragmentation and anti-armour ordanance as the warriors on board disembarked. The Kharybdis was armed with five of these launchers, one covering a portion of the machine's outer diameter. Each Storm Launcher was controlled independently by the assault craft's on-board Augury-array, allowing accurate fire-control even when tasked with striking multiple individual targets.
