The fleets of the Adeptus Mechanicus are often far more sophisticated than those of the Imperial Navy, utilising technologies that are deemed too sacred for the masses of humanity to use. In many cases, archeotech systems are placed aboard starships
solely to test them, so that their effectiveness can be properly determined and studied. The Omnissiah’s Vigil is one such vessel, fitted with ancient targeting systems and plasma reactors as part of one extensive research project.
Assigned to the service of Magos Juris Ambolic, this swift and perceptive vessel is well-suited to pursuing heretek starships from one side of the sector to the other, and crushing them in battle when the pursuit is over.
