The Stasis Bomb is a deadly archaic weapon only utilised by the Dark Angels Space Marine Chapter and the Successor Chapters of the Unforgiven. The Stasis Bomb is an archaic holdover from the Age of Technology, and is part of the ordnance of the deadly and much feared aircraft known as the Ravenwing Dark Talon that is a part of the armoury of the elite 2nd Company, known as the Ravenwing. In the workshops of The Rock, the Chapter's Techmarines labour lovingly over the construction of each bomb, using a STC template they have repeatedly denied owning. The blast of a stasis bomb causes a degree of damage but, more importantly, will momentarily halt the flow of time. While the actual time-stopping is measured in mere milliseconds, this unnatural disruption to the time stream has lingering effects on those in close proximity to such a blast, causing gut-wrenching disorientation and slowing their reaction times. The victim of stasis bomb are ripe to be finished off by nearby squads; typically these are Ravenwing Attack Squadrons or Deathwing Terminators.
