Third World Space: Ground Troops and Equipment. By Jason Douglas Essex
Ground units are lead by a Tactical Commander, who leads thirty (30) well trained units, who have under gone eight (8) weeks of training. During this training the troops undergo physical, mental and field training, with terrain and field course objectives. Special weapons and tactics are also taught, as are creative uses for them. These troops are to be considered “Standard” enlisted troops and their gear, equipment and weaponry are also to be considered “Standard” as well.
Combat Ready Troops:
Boots: Waterproof and several pockets as well in each. A combat knife comes equipped in the left or right boot, depending on the preference of the owner. A GPS tracking chip with ID Signature is built into the the other boot as well.
Pants: Multiple pockets are within these garments. Dye packets are sewn into them at key loc-ations for water encounters, with different colors, to be seen at both day and night time. A compass is also sewn into them, for ease of use.
Combat Belt and Holsters: Hold twin Equalizer Auto Mag .538 Pistols with built in mini flash bag cartridge atop them. The pistol itself holds ten (10) rounds and the cartridge holds seven (7) rounds. This pistol has a secondary trigger for the flash bang cartridge and its use.
Flack Vest: Able to stop or resist small arms fire and it also comes with a matching set of gloves, arm and shin guards. This vest usually has smoke grenades, clips and communication equipment stored within it.
Helmet: An opened faced helmet, that also has a detachable face mask with builtin oxygen sup-ply. It comes with a builtin HUD, to be linked, with micro drones, that the Unit Leaders is in constant communication with. They then link communications to their team members to preform tasks and duties. The HUD and helmet are also equipped with light and sound dampeners, should they get caught in the line of fire of the sonic canon from the Tactical Commander.
Rifle: The Executioner is a duel barreled Tommy Gun style, that holds two (2) circular clips. The first clip holds three-hundred (300) rounds of explosive ammunition and the second clip holds one-hundred (100) rounds of liquored nitrogen ammunition. These have been used in the past to great effectiveness against alien threats. This has been used to minimize biological hazards and to limit their exposure to quarantine, after a battle, by using these rounds during and after the battle.
The Tactical Commander of the unit leads three teams of thirty (30) troops and each of these is lead by a Unit Leader. The Unit Leaders and Tactical Commander have better interfaces and communications then the other troops and generally are guarded by troops. The drones in play ensure a tight perimeter around the leaders. The Tactical Leader has perimeter defenses in play, and are encased in field armour and builtin weapons systems. This suit weighs in at three (3) tons and have twin shoulder mounted mini gatling guns mounted on each shoulder, with a 270 degree field of vision. These weapons fire amour piecing rounds and carry a sonic cannon that can hit with enough force to knock troops to the ground.
