Default Information on the Baneblade

Could anyone give me information (not about the actual rules) on the Baneblade and its variants? I know about the different weapons for each one and I know what they look like, as well as what the interior of a Shadowsword looks like, but that's about it apart from that they have six crew members (not quite sure on that one just yet). If someone has any volume of Imperial Armour with the Baneblade or a Baneblade variant in it then could you tell me the factual background information (i.e. the dimensions, the size of the shells, number of crew members, type of crew members etc.).

...Exactly what I said I want. The, for want of a better word, factual background information on the Baneblade, i.e. not its history or notable battles.

There is nothing in Imperial Armour that has anything like that.

At least read IA before making comments like that; straight out of IAvol1:

Crew: Commander, Gunner, 3 Gunners, 3 Loaders, Comms-Opperator, Engineer

Powerplant: LC503 V18 P4 Multi-Fuel

Weight: 319 Tonnes (316 on Mars Pattern)

Length: 13.5 Metres

Width: 8.4 Metres

Height: 6.3 Metres

Ground Clearance: 1.2 Metres

Maximum Speed: 25 kph (18 kph offroad)

Ammunition: Baneblade Battle Cannon (22 Rounds), Demolisher Cannon (18 Rounds), 2x Autocannon (300 Rounds), 6x Heavy Bolters (4000 Rounds), 2x Lascannons.

Armour: Turret 220mm, Superstructure 210mm (200mm Mars), Hull 190mm (180 Mars), Gun Mantlet 180mm

Hopefully this isn't pushing the copywrite rules/law - it's interesting info but it's got nothing to do with ingame statistics or points etc.

Thanks, that's pretty much exactly what I was looking for. This topic can be locked now.

That isn't factual backround. That's vehicle statistics.

I answered exactly the question that Subzero asked - at least read the first post in the topic before getting openly unhelpfull.

Subzero - no problem mate, IA is a great book to have for stuff like this... I'm ending my input to the thread now though, before I say something I know I'll regret :.

Carnex, Subzero clearly asked for the information below in his first post:

You failed to provide the information so Dra'Tuisich-Novae provided it instead. Get over it. The question has now been answered, there is no need to stir up unnecessary arguments.
