The Land Raider Crusader is a variant of the standard Land Raider Phobos used by the Space Marines and the Inquisition. The Land Raider Crusader is rearmed to provide short-ranged, anti-infantry assault support for offensives. The Land Raider Crusader was originally developed as a variant of the standard Land Raider main battle tank by the Black Templars Space Marine Chapter, but was eventually approved as an authorised design for all Astartes Chapters by the Adeptus Mechanicus due in no small part to its usage by the Ultramarines Space Marine Chapter. It was originally designed during the Jerulas Crusade in 645.M39 by the Black Templars Artificer Simagus using recovered ancient techno-arcana in the long-forgotten depths of a captured Hive City. As tales of this variant Land Raider's successes spread, many other Chapters began to request information regarding its design. The Tech-priests of Mars officially recognised the Crusader Pattern of the Land Raider in 763.M39, although this was a mere formality since the design had already spread to hundreds of Chapters.

The Land Raider Crusader is armed with a hull-mounted Twin-linked Assault Cannon and two Sponson-mounted Hurricane Bolters, Hurricane Bolters are six Boltguns linked together. The Crusader is also equipped with a Pintle-mounted Multi-Melta to burn through armored walls. The removal of the standard Land Raider's Lascannon generators has increased the carrying capacity of the Crusader by an additional 50% making the Crusader able to carry sixteen Space Marines or eight Terminators into the heat of battle. The Land Raider Crusader is crewed by three Space Marines and has its own Machine Spirit. The Crusader has one additional unique upgrade in the form of Frag Assault Launchers situated on either side of the front entrance/exit ramp. These are designed to fire shrapnel at an entrenched enemy to aid the transported unit's charge when they leave the vehicle. The primary role of this vehicle in combat is to serve as an armoured fast assault tank, capable of launching assaults into the heart of enemy formations where it can withstand a heavy amount of punishment and deal out more than its share of damage to both infantry and tanks. The Land Raider Crusader can also be outfitted with a dozer blade, a Hunter-Killer Missile Launcher, a Pintle-mounted Storm Bolter in addition to its Pintle-mounted Multi-Melta, a searchlight, and smoke launchers.
