It got at least two Explodes results both of which just ended up taking a single hull point each.

Just like its namesake the Malcador’s origins are obscure, and its usage across the Imperium is infrequent and rare, with some regions having never seen or heard of the tank. The reversed Chimera is in the background as the Bikes ready their charge. I just need to magnetise the sponsons and paint it.
Of course, the current rendition of it sets the Malcador’s unit type as “Superheavy, Fast Tank”, which is hilariously redundant. Some Infernus tank crews will use corrosive chemicals as their ammunition instead of Promethium, turning the Malcador Infernus into an oversized Bane Wolf on steroids.
As a result, they are rarely deployed amongst the Imperial Guard’s armored regiments. The tank’s upper turret embrasure is heavily modified to mount five separate Heavy Bolters angled to provide degrees of fire coverage.
Of all the variants, the Valdor is perhaps the rarest and most expensive of them all. Despite this, Forge World has given it 2 Heavy Bolters in 8th Edition, likely because they just doubled the weapons of a Basilisk.

However carrying a large amount of flammable fuel in a separate trailer does make for a tempting target and, if detonated by enemy fire, can result in a fiery explosion which incinerates tank and crew; postings to an ‘Infernus’ are rarely well-received.
These tanks were used to horrifying effect to defend breaches in the heretical lines during the Siege of Vraks. Equipped with a fearsome array of weapons of its own, the Dracosan could steadfastly defend itself against enemy counter-attack and pound enemy positions to dust before the auxiliaries disembarked to storm what remained of their objective. The Malcador is now actually somewhat good! It has Fear and Move Through Cover.
The massive gout of flames malcaror from the Inferno Gun is also effective at clearing mines, the sudden heat detonating mine fuses and making large areas safe much quicker than alternative methods. Though it has a longer range and higher strength than the mini-Inferno Cannon used by the Hellhoundit has the unreliable engine compared to the Fast Hellhounda hull-mounted primary weapon which is disastrously impractical especially for such a close range weapon and has a tendency to explode when catastrophically damaged.
