Assault Daleks were special bronze Daleks equipped with laser-cutting arms and blowtorch to replace their plunger manipulator arms. They had a claw and blowtorch combination. These were used for cutting through strong metal and for picking up objects normal Dalek drones could not.
During the Second Dalek War, Dalek X had a squad of four Assault Daleks among his entourage. They were vaporised circa the 2580s at the end of the war when the Tenth Doctor blew up a disused refuelling station on the planet Hurala, taking Dalek X’s Exterminator with it. (Prisoner of the Daleks)
During the Battle of the Game Station, an Assault Dalek was sent to cut open a Hydra Combination-composed door leading to the observation deck containing Lynda Moss, with a blowtorch. It, along with the rest of the Dalek Fleet, was destroyed by the Bad Wolf. (The Parting of the Ways)
