Description of Mechanized Infantry vs Armor from what I read in books(and interesting web sites  ) Mechanized Infantry is Infantry riding trucks and hummers so they're faster and slightly better armed than normal Infantry. Armor means things like tanks, heavy crap like that. Artillery, in case someone asks, is the huge @$$ guns that stay behind the lines and shoot at the guys on the other side of the lines. Once again, this is just the description I've gotten after...  I think it's been eleven years of reading war related books.

Oh yeah, Stormy.  The reason we got all our equipment requests granted was that it was only on the storynet, it hasn't shown up on the roster yet

Artillery pretty much involves sitting in the rear, out of the fighting, and popping off a laser or missile whenever someone tells you to. You don't want that. I'll detail the equipment you might expect as different types either here or in Commander's Comnet within the next couple of days.  I have notes on what I was imagining when I came up with this.  I just have to find them....   ----------------------- XO/LTC Fury/VEA/TADATH/VE [SotE:HC][SotE:VEA][IOC] Company Commander Shopkeeper - Imperial Center

If I were inclined to become 'Commando Squad Quartermaster' I would happily supply you with some of mine (I think I have enough munitions stored to outfit both our squads now).

We've got a few new troopers assigned to squads.  Welcome PFC Cheekco to the Dark Dragoons, and PFCs Maul and Myrrdin to the Dread Knights. PFC Cloud has transferred over to the Raiders by personal request.  Some of us just like to blow things up the old fashioned way and his request has been granted. Welcome Corporal Psychotic Blaze back into the ranks, also into the Dark Dragoons. And here's where we get to the difficult part of the Army reorganization. We've been debating this one for quite a long while.  Not only is it an efficient decision, it is also an object lesson about what may happen when activity is not kept up...especially when we know you are online. So.... Considering the losses taken during the campaign and the disparity between losses and new recruits, I am announcing the following changes in personnel to be effective immediately. All members of Iron Horse squad have been reassigned as follows: To Storm Platoon, Squad One (no official name): 2LT Timber Saden - troopers will follow as membership allows To Dark Dragoons: Captain Japer Sergeant Raxen To Wraith: Sergeant Major Dez Sergeant Major Tylen Jaap As membership and activity increase, expect Iron Horse to return.  Also, once we see activity across the board, expect to see a new Elite Squad Competition...but do NOT ask for one without proof. Ranks, positions, and special consideration will come as both individuals and teams contribute to activity.

Now I know I can equip two squads with weapons. Shame you can't buy armour from the store, maybe I'll make a request of it. Why do I do this? So I own an awful lot of guns.

/me stands up and applauds Fury. Forget the old man jokes for today, Colonel. This is the kind of thing I've felt the army has needed ever since I joined the VE. I'm ecstatic to see it happen. And I happily welcome Nomar and Cloud to the ranks of the Raiders. Maybe I can get their lousy butts in gear now that they're in my squad. It'll be just like old times back in Aegis . . . So again, a huge thanks goes out to Fury and Talon. Keep up the awesome job, guys. This insignificant little Corporal would give you a big hug and a cookie, but I don't feel like driving that far to see you.

Actually, there's an addendum to that last post of mine... SGM Tylen Jaap is going to the Dark Dragoons as well. Darn medication I'm on keeps befuddling my brain.

Ok, back to the whole specialization thing.  I still haven't found those notes (damn this fever), but here's some top-of-the-head thoughts. Walker squad - composed of 5-6 walker types and 2-3 support vehicles (mechanic, transport, command vehicle, etc.).  There could just be a true Armor squad with TIE Crawlers and CAVs and the like, but I'm not sure if anyone would want that.  Let me know. Repulsorlift squad (aka Mechanized Infantry squad) - composed of 2-3 troops carriers with supporting vehicles This is little different from modern theory as the Walker squad is faster and more mobile than our modern armor units. Also, Repulsorlift units are capable of heavier weaponry than you would expect (e.g. US Army M-2 Bradleys are about the heaviest Mech Inf vehicles around depending on configuration, but are still built for speed) I'm refining this a little as I see your posts and have discussions with people on IRC.  Let's see how these ideas work for ya.

I'm guessing the Dread Knights are still Spec Ops, sorta like Rainbow 6 but with more capabilities and better looks

Not so sure about those looks...don't think we gave you full cover helmets without a good reason But yes, you do have the jist of it.  And I will work on you and the Wraiths equipment.  Most of it will be restricted to movement and shooting.  Personal gear will eventually be up to you and will be more mission specific.

Hey, you might give us those full cover helmets, but we don't wear them because it would be a crime to deprive anyone of our beautiful profiles    Besides, try getting a stormtrooper helmet that fits a Whiphid    As to my assignment, I guess I'll live with it    PARTY!!!!!!!!!!!

Well yes, you both are along those lines but I was thinking more along these lines.  Tell me if I have it wrong. Wraiths are more your SAS/Green Beret types.  There are usually in the field but are the head honco hombres there, placed to fight where needed most or going it alone on missions other squads aren't trained to. Dread Knights are your classic special missions troops.  Strange insertions outside of the realm of the normal battlefield. Basically, Wraiths may drop behind enemy lines to take out an officer, but the Dread Knights would find out what planet his family is on and blackmail him accordingly. Does that make sense?
