Khador’s mechaniks build their warjacks to last. The Juggernaut is a hulking mass of plated armor wielding an ice axe that can encase its target in a layer of crippling ice. This sturdy chassis has given rise to other staples like the Destroyer, whose whistling shells arcing overhead portend explosive obliteration. The Marauder was also built on this frame and uses its piston-driven battering rams to deliver pulverizing impacts that can hurl enemy warjacks away with effortless ease. Another is the Decimator, engineered to annihilate well-armored targets with powerful direct fire. This ’jack’s wide-bored cannon smashes its victims to the ground before it closes to tear them apart with its whirling rip saw.

Thoughts on Decimator
Comparison to Mk2
The Decimator has made it into the new edition unchanged, sporting nothing but a name change on the Revolver Cannon which is now called a Dozer.
Decimator in a nutshell
The Decimator, a welcome addition to the Khador warjack family, is a heavy designed to hunt heavies - it has one of the hardest hitting guns in the game, and one of the most effective weapons in the game for cutting heavies apart. For the same cost as the Destroyer, it provides board control with the multi-fire Dozer, movement shenanigans with Beat Back, and a good chance to scrap other 'jacks outright with the Rip Saw and three focus.
Sustained Attack lets the Decimator make very efficient use of any focus points it spends on melee. Given its RAT, however, it will burn through focus like a drag racer through gasoline if you're relying on the Dozer. This can make it tricky to use especially considering the attraction of Beat Back, since so many Khador 'casters rely on spells to auto-boost attacks rather than allocating focus directly to their 'jacks. A well-handled Decimator is a terror, though.
Combos & Synergies
The Man-o-War Kovnik could alleviate some of the concerns noted above; under the new 'Jack Marshal rules, Take Aim! would let the Decimator get off a flurry of powerful attacks at no Focus cost. On a charge, the Kovnik's Drive (which grants Assault) lets the Decimator bring both weapons into play. While not very thematic, the Decimator benefits a lot from The Old Witch's Field Marshal (Apparition) and especially Weald Secrets, which lets the Decimator navigate through and fire Dozer shots with impunity from inside a cloud or forest at enemies that are usually unable to return the favor.
Drawbacks & Downsides
Decimators tend to be big focus hogs to be effective.
