Really there seems to be no real reason to use the Arvus. That said, the Arvus is, as noted on pagefrequently customised lithter other duties variations exist that haul liquid cargo like fuel, or which have expanded cargo compartmentsso it isn’t inconceivable to imagine a customised or variant shuttle capable of carrying an Rhino.

Retrieved from ” https: Amongst other things, a Rhino is nearly as tall as an Arvus I have Imperial Armour 2 and 4, which contain technical details for the Rhino and Arvus, respectively, right beside me so I could check; a Rhino is 3.

A Rhino won’t fit.

A wide variety of other adaptations also exist for the lighter, such as converting the cargo hold to carry fuel and turning it into a tanker or elongating the hull to carry more cargo at the expense of speed and handling.

The Arvus is not a combat vehicle and was never intended to liggter an enemy, although if times are desperate enough the Arvus can be used as a makeshift assault boat for boarding actions during void combat, or as a transport ship during ground engagements. For more details on the ship itself see: Which means you can fly them all over the board. Lightsr Rhinos are mounted along the hull of the Transporter, grasped by clamps.


It could be possible for it to carry one, just not inside of itself, by attaching it to the underside of the main hull. No blasts or templates can be used on flyers, either. Do you use them regularly or find them to fickle or overpriced for most games? I imagine similar constructions are used for the smaller-scale Thunderhawk Transporter, at ravus for Rhinos Land Raiders have the same kind of heat-resistant composite armour that Thunderhawks do, just more of it, so it’s less necessary for them.

My question is – do you think you could get a Rhino APC or similar vehicle in lighyer Dropping a Land Raider from orbit would cause it to break up regardless of its armour properties because its just not the right shape. It simply won’t fit. It is crewed by a single pilot who controls the ship from a small cramped cockpit, connected to the cargo compartment by a small hatchway.

Also I don’t think Rhino’s are designed to survive re-entry. The most surprising thing about the Gladiator event was how incredibly annoyed people are about Flyers.

The Arvus is not designed to have a Rhino attatched to it during re entry and its possible that the increased heat resistance from the Rhino would cause the Arvus’s heat shielding to fail causing them both to explode. The larger equivalent of the Thunderhawk Transporter used in Epic, capable of carrying 6 Rhinos or 4 Land Raiders is described as using disposable heat shielding that fits over the transported vehicles during re-entry and is discarded during flight.

Or, as the Arvus is merely one of a variety of patterns and models of cargo shuttle in use by the Imperium, you could easily make up an entirely lihhter type of shuttle that can fit an Arvjs in the back. That would kind of effect its aerodynamic characteristics somewhat.

It then presents the issue that if they ever need a quick evac do they leave the ground craft behind? If you do like to use them, lets hear what your regualr types and tactics are.

An Arvus Lighter delivering supplies to Anphelion Base The Arvus Lighter is a small, general purpose cargo shuttle that is widely used by the Imperium of Man for many tasks, both in space and on the surface of planets. And of course the massive extra weight would likely cause the Arvus to crash anyway if it did make it down.

Indeed – and that’s what I’ll end up doing. They do every time they’re used: So if your flyer is shaken or there is no good place to put it on the board, just move it off and bring it on again next turn.
