Default Imperial guard dreadnought why not?

Okay I been watching moves and am a SM fan as im interested in a trator IG army I was wondering why there is no Imperial guard dreadnought? My thought is that armoured company would have one at least

the IG dreadnought is called a titan. their soldiers are not usually worth keeping alive that long.

the guard has no need for a dreadnought. they have sentinels and a slew of tanks to make up for it. for cc, they have orgryns. if you want dreadnoughts, put deamon hunters in with your army

Titans don't come under the command of the Imperial Guard. Sentinels are the Guard equivelant.

Guard are limited in what they are allowed because 'they can not be trusted' with really high tech and or too powerful equipment according to the Mechanicus.

The Marines are probably the only organisation (maybe some forge worlds) that even know how to make Dreads.

Marines have things such as the Black Carapace that allows them to be put in a Dread. Marines can survive far more serious wounds than Guard commanders and even if a Guard commander could be put in a Dread (assuming we take out the Black Carapace requirement etc), they could recover or use bionics (or get transplants) for injuries that don't kill them for the most part. The fact that Marines can survive longer after suffering an injury that will eventually kill them gives time for them to be put in a Dread.

Even then only truley mighty and heroic Marines get put in a Dread, very, very few if any normal Human compares to a Marine Hero. So it wouldn't be worth putting them in a Dread.

So.....a Sentinel. We already have a perfectly fine Walker unit.

exept for the fact the sentinal is not like a dred at all. it's a light scout walker/fire support. this is about an actual dred for ID. hey, ill get to making one (check new topic in conversion secion)
