Although in different parts of Karaz-a-Karak the complex rises many more floors above the Grand Floor, this floor is noted as the grandest of them all for its importance to all of Karak Ankor.
High above the Grand Floor lay the Mountaintop Cannon Battery firing down upon the invading Greenskins. Sheltered within the mountain on this very same level is the Gyrocopter Hanger of Karaz-a-Karak, a massive hanger of scores of the flying machines which greatly aid the defense of the Hold. One pair of hanger doors opens to the outside world, another opens to the Hall of Kings so that the machines can be transported from the Engineer’s Guild up to the Gyrocopter Hanger.
