+++ The Char C Heavy Tank +++
+++ To the Visum Geata Adeptus Mechanicus +++
After discussion with general Garnif it was decided to look for a further option for movable firepower than only towed artillery.
The factory producing the Massif was already over crowded to be able to supply all companies with troop carries. So we had to look for another platform to work as gun carrier. I found a factory in the outskirts of Hive Agnebergus producing a transport vehicle made to transport grain to the space port originally made to tow rows of carts on the roads of Angebergus. We tried several different fittings of weapons before we settled with a version armed with heavy artillery pieces, bolters and stubbers.
The original transport was called a Char and since it was the third variant we settled for we decided to call it the Char C.
