Biography

The Special Weapons Dalek is a heavily-armoured Imperial Dalek, seen in Remembrance of the Daleks. Unlike a conventional Dalek, the Special Weapons Dalek has no manipulator arm or eyestalk. Instead, it has an enormous energy cannon mounted on the front of the armoured casing in place of the usual small gunstick and several red squares around the dome in place of the usual eyestalk. Special Weapons Daleks do not speak, but do have massive firepower.

In Remembrance of the Daleks the Special Weapons Dalek’s firepower was so great that one shot completely destroyed two conventional Renegade Daleks, leaving only a pair of burn marks, and the armour was sufficient to deflect conventional Dalek energy weapons without suffering any apparent damage. The livery was white with golden bumps, but with sections of metallic gray armour covering most of the upper portion with much battle scoring.

At least one Special Weapons Dalek was among the Daleks who operated on the rebuilt Skaro where the dying Davros lived as he called the Twelfth Doctor to him. (The Magician’s Apprentice) These Daleks were destroyed by the rejuvenated Daleks in the sewers.
(The Witch’s Familiar)

The Special Weapons Dalek was mentioned in the novel War Of The Daleks.

They had a small cameo in Asylum of the Daleks
