The Land Raider Helios is a variant of the standard Land Raider used by the Adeptus Astartes that replaces some of the standard Land Raider's existing weaponry with a more specialised loadout. The Helios mounts a Whirlwind Missile Launcher in place of the standard pattern's Twin-linked Heavy Bolters. The background for the tank states that the Helios was designed by the Red Scorpions Space Marine chapter to supplement their existing artillery during the Siege of Helios. Purportedly, the extra space required for storing the whirlwind launcher's missiles reduced the transport capability of the vehicle.
