» 501st Cadian Battle Tank Bataillon
Bataillon with a strong inter-branch tradition, the 501st CTB is, as its name suggests, from Cadia and participated many times in defense of the Cadian Gate. It currently belongs to the army of General-Commander Hernest Von Hermin who fights to win back the system of Bel Alphagor.

Currently, the Regiment fight on the 5th planet with an arid climate and has large expanses of desert where remain rare oasis. The bataillon competes fiercely with the Big Boss Gourk the "Desert Fox" and his terrible OrkaKorps.

Highly mechanized and with a significant logistical support, the regiment is perfectly suited to the open environment of the planet. Despite this, Colonel Montgomery met so far with little success in the conquest of the main continent but it is about to launch a major offensive called Agile Foot.

The regiment is supported by a few titans (1 Warlord, 3 and 4 Reavers Warhound) of Legio Honorum and a household of Knights from the Beaumaris family. It also includes a detachment of veterans skitarii and some Techno-adepts looking for a mysterious artifact on the planet and only the Emperor knows what it is.

In its initial configuration, the regiment has:

The regiment received the support of several other entities of the Imperial Guard:

_ Health support in the form of a campaign hospital still from the 8th Vaxorian
_ The equivalent of 2 abhumans companies (nobody knows what regiment they come: the ogryns have forgotten or never knew and ratlings can't say a word about it)

It receives support from the Navy in the form of:
_ 3 squadrons of Marauders
_ 3 squadrons of Thunderbolts
