The factory world of Kirov is a small compared to others. Their primary export to the empire is the Carnosaur Medium tank. It is similar to other, similarly named, medium tanks manufactured on other factory worlds, but can be acquired at a fraction of the cost. The Carnosaur was used extensively by auxiliary forces during the great civil war 10,000 years ago. In addition to the turret mounted weapons, Carnosaurs were often armed with a single-fire Anti-tank Grimdark Missile (ATGM).
Some chapters of the Empire’s elite Spacemen made use of Carnosaur tank during the 18th Purple Crusade. Due to the high demand for armored vehicles, the Techomarines sanctioned alternative procurement options. The versatile Carnosuar could be configured with the exact same weapon load-out as the more complex Predatory-class tanks. Due to the additive manufacturing process employed in the Carnosuar design, it could be acquired with fewer resources and brought to the battlefield more quickly.
Recently, the Carnosaur medium tank was been modified in the field to bring the armaments in line with those of the main Imperial Battle Tanks. The secondary turrets weapons are sometimes replaced with powerful multimelters and plasma cannons. The main turret weapon can be replaced with more traditional weapons such as the venerable battling cannon, tank killing vanquishing cannon, or, for anti-infantry duties, the punishing cannon. An additional laser cannon, heavy banger, or flamethrower may be mounted co-axial with the mail gun or in a secondary turret, replacing the commanders cupola. Many examples mount additional machine-gun or stormbangers in these same locations.
