The majority of Baneblades were produced on Marsand the Lords of the Red Planet hold the Mars class vehicle as the inalienable iteration of the Machine God’s vision and it galled them greatly that certain other Forge Worlds produced their own patterns.
Seriously, try and do a parallel parking with this monster when trying to aim at some scrubs hiding behind a concrete wall. Baneblsde were given their own pattern in the fluff, and thrust upon an unsuspecting Forge World the other kind to make and produce for all eternity.
Its a well known fact that the crew members of Baneblades are chosen exclusively on the grounds of how big their balls are.
The third gunner remotely controls these weapons from his station on the command deck, assisted by the third loader, but indeed any of the Baneblade’s many weapons can be remotely aimed and fired from this station. What you see in the photos are the exact item you will receive.

The Stormlord is designed with but one purpose: To the untrained eye the differences between the vehicles appeared superficial, but the Tech-Priests of Mars preached otherwise, furthering that many schisms that had developed between the various Forge Worlds throughout the final decades of the Great Crusade.

In all seriousness, The power of the Quake Cannon, combined with the armour of a super-heavy, has established the Banesword as the pinnacle of Imperial siegecraft. The Baneblade is powered by a massive multi-fuel powerplant, located in the rear of the tank, which produces the enormous amount of energy necessary for the tank to function.
