Nocturne's Hammer is the oldest known Rhino in existance and owned by the Salamanders Chapter.
So far i know it is featured in WD#269 (#268).

I'm looking for pictures, because i own only german WDs.

Odd...the Rhino is quite old as a vehicle, from the Dark Age of Technology. but I believe you, it does sound like a typical GW contradicting itself thing.

Oldest one still in commission, presumably all the ones before it are either long since destroyed, abandoned on some distant world or melted down.
As much as the imperium likes ancient stuff, even tanks get a bit slow to start on cold days after 10,000 years. They can only keep them going for so many millenia.
Even more for this one, it was Vulkan's personal transport so it could date from the early days of the great crusade.
Good luck finding pictures, perhaps there's a sabertooth card of it during the heresy?

Aren't there pictures in the WD article?

If you want to use it in-game, get yourself one of the older Rhino kits, add imagination, and try not to damage it! :p

EDIT: Pictures - none that I know of, sorry.

Epic! Good grief, man! :D That's above and beyond the call of duty! I still think you should use one of the older Rhinos rather than the new ones, as they just don't look ancient enough.
