The Reign of Anger is a refit of the older Rain of Fury fire support vehicle. The hull remained the same, but improved sensors were added. The biggest difference is that the Reign of Anger no longer carries a MRLS system (which has been outdated by the introduction of the Horde Semi-guided warhead munition).

Instead, it carries two sizeable Warhead Launchers. These have the same capacity as one of the Foul Wing Fighter’s munitions bays, but divided into two launchers on independent loads, rather than the two launchers attached to a large bay. This means the Reign of Anger can only load one type of warhead at once in each launcher (and typically the same in both). Despite this drawback, they are surprisingly effective. Most foes underestimate the Reign of Anger, believing (not unjustifiably) that it is the older Rain of Fury. This can come as something of a shock when it fires out warheads.

The Reign of Anger’s standard load is eight Skull Anti-ship/Anti-Armour warheads. Used in an AA role, in carries four Render heavy anti-fighter missiles (the largest of the Reaper/Reaver/Render trio).

The Reign of Anger is even capable of heavy demolitions; the warhead bays can manage to accomodate a single Shatterer Heavy Anti-Starship munition each. The Shatterers are capable of blasting the heaviest planetary defences apart. In at least one recorded occasion, the Reign of Anger has used this capability to engage in combat against starships.

Royal Elven Kingdom forces attacked the Aotrs’ Caradat Moon Base. With few available fighters and only a Subterfuge Scoutship to fend them off, the commander created an unorthodox strategy. The base put up a token resistance before appearing to be disabled. Under cover of the engagement, the commander deployed a pair of Reign of Angers from a shipment that was due to go out in the transports. In the low gravity, they had to be tied down, and were not able to move. Fortunately, the Aotrs standard practise of making sure all vehicles capable of self-sealing enabled the Reign of Angers to function in the vacuum otherwise unimpeded. The Elven cruiser ignored them, and they were able to fire a spread of Shatterers from relativistically point-blank range as it moved over the horizon (a few scant miles away) to fire at the base. Because of the range and the cruiser flying in to a stop, the Reign of Angers were able to use purely visual targeting to pinpoint the optimum targeting spots on the cruiser. As there was no sensor lock and no significant power source to detect (since the Reign of Angers were otherwise powered down, aside from just enough juice to power the actual firing system) there was no warning for the cruiser. As it lowered its shields to start teleporting marines down, the Reign of Angers fired. The warheads crippled the cruiser, and it retreated. Amazingly, the Reign of Angers both survived. Their crews and commanders were decorated with the Diamond Spear (the Aotrs’ highest commendation) by the Lichemaster for heroism under fire above and beyond the call of duty.

Like the Vampires and the Distant Thunder, as of 2342, the Reign of Angers have begun all to be upgraded with a new, stronger power plant and the addition of the new external shield grid matrix, giving the vehicle light but effective shield protection without having to sacrifice any payload or armour.
