As requested: Death Korps of krieg From Warhammer 40k/
Unit Name: "The Deathtroopers of krieg" or "kyr'am'verde be'krieg" in mando'a
Equipment: Blitz'gam mk Armor, TL-50 Blaster repeater, or DLT-19x Targeting blaster rifle, depending on the squadron and mission requirements, ZX Mini flame projector mounted to their vambraces, and are typically armed with a spare vbroknife, or an Force pike in some cases, along with thermal detonators.
Description: A highly trained brigade of soldiers, taken from the top recruits of the mandalorian training programs on krieg, or inducted from notable individuals from other units, the deathtroopers of krieg are the grim defenders of their homeworld, trained to kill in it's defense, and taught put all else aside, the deathtroopers of krieg will put down their lives, or the lives of others if it means defending krieg from it's enemies. It has earned them the respect of their people, and the fear of their enemies. They all wear their signature Blitz'gam armor, and are marked by a single mythosaur skull pin worn either on the breastpocket of their uniform, or the belt of their kana.
The Deathtroopers of krieg are typically deployed in small fire teams, but can also act as shock troopers if the situation call for it. The Deathtroopers are often attached to a QRF fleet, fireteams are never more than a quick hyperspace jump away from the main brigade.
Unit Size: Large, Never more than 1000 active deathtroopers at any given point in time.
Unit Availability: Unique
Unit Experience: Elite
Combat Function: the deathtroopers of krieg are trained to act as elite fireteams of 2 to 4 individuals, usually providing sniper support, recon, slicing, and other special support. In some cases, the brigade will act as an elite shock trooper unit, should the need arise.
+The best of krieg: The deathtroopers are picked from only the best graduates of krieg's training programs, and undergo more advanced training with clan naudir, they are taught to handle themselves with most melee weapons and to fight hand to hand. Certain individuals that show keen eyesight are selected as squad marksman, and they are taught to maneuver as needed with repulsor packs.
-The Force: This is not specifically an anti FU unit, while future squadrons could in theory be outfitted specifically to deal with force sensitive enemies, and do carry force pikes, they do not have any specific defenses against the force itself.
-cybernetic weakness: a kriegir deathtrooper's experience chip, flash contacts, and pain killer dispensers can all be deactivated for extended periods of time or even damaged by Ion\EMP effects, if said effects can bypass their armor.
It started during the kriegir gamorrean raiding season of 846 ABY, when the hordes attacked the incomplete Steel fortress, The defense was lead by a mandalorian named "Blitz Kor", who was once a death trooper from one of the many imperial remnants before going rogue and joining the naudir. Ahead of the gamorrean invasion, he took five other men and drilled them for several weeks as the horde slowly moved through the deserts, teaching them as much as he could of his death trooper training in the short amount of time they had. The result were the first death troopers, they were raw and undisciplined in comparison to the current generation of kriegir deathtroopers, but they were still a force to be reckoned with. Through home made explosives, snipers, primitive traps, sabatoge and knowledge passed on to them by the native shi'lai, they turned the tide of battle.
After the horde had been defeated, Blitz and his men were tasked with securing the safety of the clan and their newly formed shi'lai allies, a task that they took very seriously. Once the naudir began training their own troops, Blitz began picking the top members of each class and inducting them into the same training he had put his squad through, only now he had more time.
They exercised with repulsor packs, force pikes, hand to hand, scouting, and even survival training with the desert dwelling natives. they were taught everything they needed to know about surviing on the dusty surface of krieg, and defending their vode from whatever enemy might rear it's ugly head on krieg. Only the most patriotic and loyal of clan naudir and shi'lai warriors were allowed to call themselves deathtroopers of krieg.
Eventually the naudir used them as the poster child of krieg's reformed military forces, ensuring that there would be no shortage of applicants amongst the kriegir. Blitz sadly died about a year ago, but his original squadron continue to train deathtroopers in his name, and even named the kriegir deathtrooper armor after him.
