Default Cadian swear words

Ok this may or may not be the right board but I was wondering if anyone knows any Cadian curses, specifically one similar to to the F bomb. I could use feth or frak but this is for a Cadian army, not Tanith or Galatica. I'm trying to find a safe fictional curse as I'm going to be painting it on a tank.

In 40K Imperial Worlds swears would be Emperor/Religious based, not bodily function based.

As a General rules a society base it's swear words of what is considered Taboo or innaproprite subject. The imperium being a Theocratic Dictatorship clearly the Emperor-God would be the central point ofswaer words.

From what it seemed to me, the only reason they use feth or frak or anything like that is because then they would have to slap 'mature' labels on every book they wrote. It really depends on how PC you want to be. I wouldn't think twice about painting swear words on my tanks if I wanted, but some people aren't so brave.

You could do something like, 'Emperor Damned' or something like that.

Here's what I want to paint: 155 tons of frak you. And for those who don't get the reference its the weight of a Baneblade. I'm going for humor not gritty realism.

I think "Gak" as in "Gakking hell!" is in there too.

What's wrong with frak? Commissar Cain uses it a lot.

I think frak could work just fine. It's that or just use the real thing.

I'll pull out my old codex. In the back their is a list of terminology that the guard uses. Any terms you're looking for.

Freak, Brain, Bolt Magnet, Hangman, Leash, Plank, Twist

I guess the above could apply.
