The Burro Heavy Support Truck is produced by the Iveco company. The truck is designed to be used off-road for utility purposes as well helping combat support units in mundane tasks. The truck first saw service in various militias operating in the Chaos March, where its rugged frame is able to transit the rugged terrain of the region.[2][3]

Equipment and CapabilitiesEdit

The Burro has a Fusion Engine and each of its six wheels features an independent motor, so the vehicle is able to propel itself to a respectable 90 k/mph to help it reach its destination. The vehicle is equipped with a manipulator arm which allows the vehicle to handle various cargo, including munitions, into trailer it may be towing. The vehicle's hull is protected by 441 kgs of BAR 10 grade industrial armor, to allow it to survive the dangerous environments it is required to traverse.[2][3]

The vehicle features the following design features: Armored, Off-Road and tractor chassis, control modifications, three crew seats, five handheld searchlights and a single Manipulator Arm mounted in the front.[2][3]


The Vehicle has a cargo capacity of 163 kg with an access door on the rear of the vehicle.[2][3]


  • It is unclear what the Burro looks like. In the associated image for the "Growler/Burro Trucks" (in Technical Readout: Vehicle Annex Revised), two identical trucks (from differing angles) are depicted, though unidentified as either of the three profiled support vehicles. However, since the other two mass 1 and 2.5 tons respectively, the Burro II (massing 50 tons) is the most likely one depicted.
