The Dreadnoughtis a heavy Space Marine assault walker vehicle. The walker is actually a life-supporting sarcophagus for the remains of a mortally wounded Space Marine veteran deemed beyond the help of conventional means, yet worthy of the rare honour of becoming a holy Dreadnought. The walkers are both sacred relics of their Chapter and venerated heroes.
