- Attack Ground: The Looted Tank fires projectiles continuously at a targeted location until attacked by the enemy or moved by the player. Attack Ground commands issued at locations beyond the Fog of War are less accurate. Use this with caution, since friendly units are also affected.
The Looted Tank is essentially a Leman Russ that had been pillaged and looted from the Imperial Guard and remade to be "orky". There's no real difference between the looted or Guard variants; both have the battle cannon and several heavy bolters. However, the Looted Tank is less accurate compared to the original Leman Russ, especially the battle cannon and also has a fewer damage output as well as a slightly lower amount of Hit Points. Despite these imitations, Looted Tanks can take a lot of punishment and can take out multiple Infantry and Heavy Infantry squads with ease while under heavy enemy fire or at long range far behind the front lines. This makes the Looted Tank similar in functionality to the Space Marine Whirlwind, but with far more Hit Points and greater anti-Vehicle capabilities. To destroy them, target them with anti-Vehicle units while reaining out of range of their bolter fire, in order to prevent your infantry from taking casualties.
