Strengths & Weaknesses:
- Infantry Fighting: The Second Praetorian Regiment is well trained to deal with infantry, countering flanking actions, urban fighting and other similar infantry based warfare.
- Front Line: Unlike other regiments that are reserved for defense of the planet in the event of an invasion the 16th regiment is trained for fighting on other worlds if war breaks out and troops from core planets are called upon.
- Armed Units: Focus on anti-infantry tactics and anti personal weapons means the 16th regiment is not suited to take on armored regiments/units.
- Not Special Forces: In terms of fighting the 16th regiment is more on par with standard troopers and are not expected to go up against special forces or more elite units.
Further development of the Tythish Impieral Guard led to the designation of many other regiments though for the time being weapons and specific armor was yet to be made. As such force was put more into the current Platorian regiments and the more developed areas of the planet. Such was also commissioned to provide employment for former soldiers or those unable to find work on world due to the largely agricultural focused planet.
Though refereed to as the 16th regiment it is actually the 2nd to be organized, called the 16 due to several other designated, but yet to be formed regiments from other area's on the plant. IN addition the 16th is a honorary unit, the 16 referring to Chikako's age when she underwent memory loss. This is also seen as a symbol of beginning a new journey in the military as the 16th is the second Platorian regiment and what many people join in the military rank climbing.
The 16th regiment serves as a unit that is mainly positioned in the urban area's on Tythe, their training making them ideal for anit-infrantry and combat were armor support cannot be provided. Though still mainly used in defense of the planet if needed the 16th regiment is more then capable of being shipped to foreign combat zone if the CIS need extra troops, though is still designated as a reserve regiment as dedicated regiments are to be made for such a purpose.
Training and Battle Doctrine
The 16th regiment undergoes fairly standard training that a Imperial Army troopers would, though usually spends a few more weeks with practice in urban combat training before being assigned to the regiment. They still posses the volley fire doctrine that other regiments use for defense as well as long range fighting formation just in case they are put in such a situatio
