Default One item from the 40K universe

So me and few friends after a game had a discussion.
The question was "If you could have a single item from the entire 40k universe, be it suit of armour, wargear, technology, etc, what would it be?"
It was assumed that you would have knowledge of its use, but remember that you are still human, so would probably not be able to wield a lascannon like a spacemarine.

For instance one of us said we'd like a working pulse rifle, another said a pet Squig.

I would like a suit of Tau stealth armour (the older mark not the new one). Always thought that looked awesome.

How about you guys?

“Insane? You dare to claim that we are insane? I find this very amusing. You see, there is no such thing as sanity. Why? Because the nature of sanity depends on the context the term is used. A man living in squalor may call the rich man insane for wasting food, while the rich man in return may call the poor insane for living off his waste. You slaughter thousands and squander the resources of planets on foolish incursions to please a corpse and his corrupted followers. And you have the nerve to call me insane? Oh poor misguided individual, pray to whatever deity you serve and hope he is merciful, for those who find themselves trapped in the spiders web have little else they can do”

A Corvus Jetbike, customised so a human (i.e. me) could ride it. Obviously it would have to be biometrically activated in order to work, and would have built in defence mechanisms (similar to a displacer field), that would displace anyone trying to tamper with it to somewhere nasty. Not too bothered about armaments and ammunition, though I suppose that Plasma Cannon/Storm Bolter combo wouldn't go amiss in clearing out traffic (if for some reason I couldn't just skim over the top of it).

Oooo a Space Marine battle barge. Although any Imperial Fleet capital ship would probably do, see new worlds and all that.

I would like a case of Rejuvenat Treatments so I could live farther into the future.

So Vash, you're including that legion of minions to run it too?

For myself, just something simple, like a powerfist to cruuuuuush the unworthy!
