The XV104 was first unleashed during the Third Sphere of Expansion at the Battle of Mu'gulath Bay. There, thanks to their maneuverability, advanced weaponry, and armor, the newly deployed Riptides were effective in countering cumbersome Imperial heavy tanks and static entrenched positions. However production of the Riptide has proven slow - the materials for the dense nanocrystaline alloy armor are difficult to obtain and the sheer volume required ensures that the XV104 is a rare commodity. As a result, only experienced XV8 Bodyguards are granted the high honor of piloting a Riptide.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 108 components and a T'au transfer sheet with which to make a XV104 Riptide Battlesuit and two Shielded Missile Drones.
This kit comes supplied unpainted and requires assembly - we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel Paints.
