Laevantine-pattern super heavy tanks are a rare breed. Each one is salvaged and crafted from an Imperial baneblade that has been destroyed in the line of duty against the forces of Chaos, recaptured, consecrated and gifted to a Holy Order of the Adepta Sororitas. They are as much shrine as weapon, each one blessed and sanctified, crewed by Sisters and honoured by saints.
The tanks were named after the Baneblade Laevantine, which was wounded in the defence of the shrine-world Lorus against the daemon hordes of the Masque. Its corpse provided cover for the Grey Knight Purifiers who held the last loyal city of the planet and refused to leave it to burn in Exterminatus our of gratitude for its loyal service even after death. The restored Laevantine was gifted to the Order of the Ebon Chalice as restitution for a certain incident.
