OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION
Unit Name: 209th Sith-Imperial Battalion ('Voidlighters')
Affiliation:
  • Sith Imperium (faction)
  • Sith-Imperial Legion (parent formation of the 209th presently unknown)
  • MAJ. Marric Aurelius (brevet commanding officer)
  • Unknown (at time of record) Sith-Imperial Lord (nominal liege)
Classification: Mechanized Battalion

Equipment:
Armaments
  • SI-HB-2 Power Mace - Minor
  • SIF-57s Blaster Pistol - Minor
  • DN-1 PDW - Limited
  • Autokrator Assault Blaster Rifle - Minor
  • STA (SE) Blaster Cannon - Limited
  • Legionnaire Combat Armour Mk. III - Minor

Vehicles
  • AT-HEs - Limited (armoured assault and fire support)
  • UT-HRTs - Limited (sufficient to transport the entire infantry component of the battalion)
  • WG-114 MRAs 'Hailstorm' - Limited (rocket artillery support)
  • HAVt Barrage - Semi-Unique (for en masse assaults requiring the entire infantry force in one narrow area, or to act as mechanized C3 center for Battalion Command)

Description:
The 209th's personnel follow the trends of armament, dress and insignia among the wider Imperial Legion, with the only variations relating to their battalion iconography and the settlement on urban environment camouflage for their armour and BDUs. Companies are denoted over comms. by Aubesh alphabet, following by the relevant unit and squad position number (eg: 'Kappa 3-6' would denote the commander of the third AT-HE squadron's commander.

Their battalion's emblem - aside from the standard Legion crest - is a brazier surmounting twin crossed swords, with their battalion numeral written in Imperial Aubesh beneath.

COMBAT INFORMATION
Unit Size: Medium
Unit Availability: Uncommon
Unit Experience: Trained

Combat Function: While broadly similar to the organisation, armament and tactics of the wider Sith-Imperial Legion, the 209th Battalion is primarily specialized in mechanized warfare - utilizing effective use of fire support, walkers and fast-moving infantry - and in urban operations. Semi-independent command by their CO, in conjunction with other forces, allows them a degree of flexibility to pursue their objectives with minimal 'locking in' of their unit into otherwise-disastrous assaults. On garrison duty, the 209th follows variations in Legion occupation doctrine laid out by their commander, which is comparatively lenient compared to some within the Empire.

Strengths:

Imperium's Mailed Fist

Weaknesses:

Maintenance Nightmare
